This lecture focuses on the question of value regarding selections and imitations of ‘Roman’ vessels in the so-called Barbaricum. The aim is to tackle patterns of social practice with concepts and ideas from various disciplines like archaeology, anthropology, sociology and economy. Ultimately, this research aims to offer alternative interpretations of ‘Roman’ vessels that go beyond the dominating perspective of their “economic value”.
