We present an overview on an extended study of Celtic ceramics from the oppidum of Manching and from some contemporary Celtic sites. The results of neutron activation analysis, thin section microscopy and Mössbauer spectroscopy are combined with the existing detailed archaeological typology to provide information on the provenance of Celtic pottery and on details of its production. The data indicate that there was only very limited exchange of material but far reaching transfer of technology.
