RESEARCH FRAMEWORK FOR THE STUDY OF ROMAN POTTERY IN THE NORTH OF BRITAIN

Edited by Jeremy Evans & Steven Willis on behalf of the SGRP, Northern Regional Group. October 1997; selectively revised 2002

5. CEMETERIES

Cemetery sites have been identified by the Hadrian's Wall Advisory Committee (HWAC 1988) as being of high priority for examination in the region, but very few have yet been excavated. Given the 'primary status' of vessels from cemeteries the ceramics from these are of special importance (being chronologically useful and potentially revealing 'preferred' vessels for this type of activity). It is, therefore, an urgent priority that those sites already excavated are published, particularly the very important 3rd century cremation cemetery at Brougham, Cumbria.
