This paper examines the evolution of late antique ceramic production in Africa, pointing to continuity and change in morphology, technology and economy. Throughout this period, African ceramic shapes retained Punic traits, and remained firmly anchored in Roman tradition, but also seem to have been influenced by some new Byzantine patterns. Technology did not change radically, but there were some slight changes (impoverishment?) in the production of existing objects. The most obvious changes entailed a short distance transfer of amphora production sites from city suburbs to the countryside and to town centres, as well as a long distance transfer of Red Slip Ware workshops from Zeugitana, to Byzacena and then back to Zeugitana, to the region around Carthage.
