Philip Perkins’s treatment of bucchero in the British Museum has much to offer at many different levels of study of this typical Etruscan fabric of pottery, traditionally described as fired black throughout and having a burnished surface, dated especially to the Orientalising and Archaic periods. The superb review of scholarship on bucchero (pp. 5–8) and the thorough, up-to-date bibliography are recommended for the scholar who may be just beginning the study of this type of ceramics as well as for advanced researchers. … The volume makes major contributions to the study of this type of ceramics.
