Summary/Abstract: The project Corpus der römischen Funde im europäischen Barbaricum was launched at the initiative of the German Archaeological Institute, with the goal of publishing in a series of corpora the Roman finds, stretching from north-western Europe to the Black Sea. The corpora which have appeared to date – Germany (7 vols.), Poland (4 vols.), Lithuania (1 vol.), and Hungary (1 vol.) – are essential for becoming acquainted with the Roman imports from outside the Empire. The collective volume published in 2016: Archäologie zwischen Römern und Barbaren. Zur Datierung und Verbreitung römischer Metallarbeiten des 2. und 3. Jh. n.Chr. im Reich und im Barbaricum …(eds.: Hans Ulrich Voss, Nils Müller-Scheeßel) 1 is designed to continue the CRFB project and to unify the existing knowledge regarding the Roman products in Barbaricum and in the neighbouring provincial environment. The volume continues the success of the CRFB catalogues, and has a similar impact on scholarship. Hopefully these new publication will be the starting point for similar endeavours in peripherals and neglected regions of the European Barbaricum.
