Josep Francesc Roig Pérez

The archaeological excavations undertaken between 2013 and 2014 at the Bayer Material Science Chemical Park (La Canonja, Tarragona) brought to light a magnificent Roman villa with different architectural and chronological phases ranging from the 1st to 7th century AD. This study presents the results of the study of the pottery uncovered in a refuse tip dating from the end of the 3rd century probably linked to Frankish raids.
