Ce changement d’échelle dans les analyses est susceptible de nous apporter des informations essentielles sur la façon dont se propagent les connaissances et compétences relatives à la fabrication des roulettes. De telles données sont importantes dans une perspective où les impressions à la roulette constituent un axe central des reconstructions archéologiques. Mais les archéologues ont beaucoup à faire de leur côté également. Nous devons impérativement continuer à documenter les séquences et les distributions de la poterie imprimée.

Nous devons impérativement construire nos analyses sur des assemblages céramiques aussi vastes que possible et, surtout, utiliser des termes classificatoires qui soient descriptifs, systématiques, et compréhensibles par l’ensemble des chercheurs. La description de l’apparence visuelle de la décoration ne peut suffire : il faut également chercher à reconstituer l’outil et son mode d’utilisation.
