Amphorae were used during antiquity for the inter-regional transport of different classes of commodities. The study of these vessels has formed a significant aspect in understanding inter-regional trade dynamics. The places of production and the distribution of many classes of amphorae have been extensively studied; however, the content of many classes of amphorae has not been ascertained. The focus of this thesis is to examine six types of Black Sea amphorae that have not been previously studied with respect to content in order to determine the types of commodities they were used to transport. This will shed light on the nature of export production from several key Black Sea sites. In order to achieve this, vessel samples will by analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) using both established techniques as well as developing new methods of analyis that may assist in the continuing research in inter-regional trade during antiquity.
