*395 Bennett, J, 'The Roman Coarse Pottery', in entry
This is a report which has apparently suffered a delay between
completion and publication, and this is clearly reflected in the
style of the report, which is highly fabric-orientated, and
therefore more typical of the mid-to-late 1970's than of the
mid 1980's. There is a list of some 74 fabrics, only one of
which is described as a possible import; there are some 243
illustrated vessels, but no quantification. It is nevertheless a
very useful contribution to the study of pottery in the Bristol
and Avon region.
*396 Bennett, J, 'Appendix 3: Moulded coarse ware',
in entry no 394, 65-67.
A total of 24 vessels are discussed (with six illustrated), all
in apparently the same oxidised fabric, and all probably made
"in the general area of the source of the Avon". Only
two pieces are from the author's Sea Mills excavations, but
the rest are probably all relatively local finds. It is
suggested that (in spite of the coarse ware label) these
sherds represent another Romano-British attempt to make samian
ware, which happens also to be influenced by Celtic art
traditions, notably in various hippomorphic designs in the
*397 Detsicas, A P. 'The Samian' in entry no 394,
A brief report, with catalogues by features of the plain and
decorated forms, the former including roughly 70 identified
pieces (not quantified), and the latter including a total of 43
pieces, of which ten are illustrated. Curiously, while the plain
forms seem to be dominated by Central Gaulish wares, by a ratio
of roughly 5:2 versus South Gaulish wares, among the decorated
forms the ratio is 20 CG to 22 SG and one which could be either,
no sherds from any other sources are identified.
*398 Parker, A J, 'Amphoras', in entry no 394, 36.
A limited, although not atypical range of amphoras were present,
of which only two illustrated pieces are mentioned in this very
brief summary. Two further illustrated pieces, figure 24, nos
240-1, seem likely to be the rim and base of a Gaulish
'pulley- wheel' amphora (Peacock & Williams 1986, entry
no 368, Class 31).
