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

10. REGIONAL TYPE SERIES

Fulford and Huddleston (1991) identified the need for regional type series and suggested two based on the legionary centres of York and Chester. Unfortunately the legionary basis of York results in its ceramics being site specific and distinct from those of its hinterland for the first three centuries AD. Regional type series are, therefore, best derived from the regions as a whole rather than being based on individually important sites.
