The Production of Roman Millstones Near Orvieto, Umbria, Italy

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  21 April 2011

Extract

In 1980, it was suggested on petrological grounds that during the Roman period Orvieto was an important source of Pompeian-style mills. In 1985, a short programme of field work led to the discovery of the quarry site. This paper assesses the evidence for leucitite quarrying near Orvieto and describes newly discovered production waste.
