The B.A.R Vol. Grog-tempered 'Belgic' Pottery of South-eastern England
by Isobel Thompson has been long out of print and secondhand copies
are very rarely for sale. Many pottery specialists still use it and often
refer to it in their pottery reports. Dr Isobel Thompson has very
kindly provided a copy of her book to allow it to be scanned and put
up on the Kent Archaeological Society's website so that it can be
accessed and used for free. July 2015.
