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

Edited by Paul Booth & Steven Willis on behalf of The Study Group for Roman Pottery, Western Regional Group October 1997; selectively revised 2002

13. PRIORITIES FOR PUBLICATION

A number of significant assemblages and outstanding reports from the region can be identified which are of priority importance. These include the following:

13.1 Sites with complete or substantially complete pottery reports

Most of these pottery reports have been in existence for some years, pending the publication of the relevant excavations. All are of major regional importance and relate to themes raised above. Alcester, for example, has a good stratified sequence with large groups of Severn Valley Ware (see 3.3.5).

Beckford (Worcestershire, rural).
Coleshill (Warwickshire, temple).
Tiddington (Warwickshire, small town).
Alcester, 1-5 Bleachfield Street (Warwickshire, small town).
Churchill Hospital, Oxford (Oxon, major production site).
Wroxeter

13.2 Excavations with important assemblages requiring publication

(The status of existing work or reports on these assemblages is variable).

Mancetter-Hartshill (Warwickshire, nationally important production centre).
Lapworth (Warwickshire, a (?) regionally important production centre).
Abingdon (Oxon, nucleated settlement of uncertain type).

13.3 Assemblages from relatively recent excavations with important material, publication of which is expected or desirable

Carmarthen (Dyfed, civitas capital).
Caerwent (Gwent, civitas capital).
Cowbridge (Glamorgan, small town?).
Yarnton (Oxon, rural settlement).
Alchester (Oxon, small town periphery)
