*399 Rodwell, W, 'An early Roman stamp-decorated vessel', in entry no 394, 51.
"Five sherds, all apparently from one vessel.., the form, fabric and stamps are identical with 'Group 2, London-Essex wares' (Rodwell 1978, 234ff - in Arthur & Marsh 1978). The decoration, consisting of circular stamps and block stamps, is typical of what is now recognised as early production (ie c75-l25) at Much and Little Hadham, in Hertfordshire, and Rodwell remarks that since this type of ware had not been previously recorded west of Brentford, Middlesex, this vessel considerably extends the ware's

More or less homogeneous 1st group of samian. Very little   Neronian. Probable dating of the military occupation to c60, although very little of the pottery recovered in situ. A very large number of vessels represented ~hundreds"). "In sum, the bracket cAD 55-85 should cover the maximum likely extent of the military phase".
Location: Bristol City Museum (?)

Useful as a representative sample of pottery from the area. Unfortunately the same applies to the coarse pot. as to the samian: the assemblage has a complicated history of deposition. Much residual material. Much of the pottery dates from the earlier, military period, but there is no sign of a complete break in occupation - there are apparently signs of reduced activity up to the end of the 4th century. A wide range of local and imported material, particularly in the earlier phase. Journal of Roman Pottery Studies  Vol 4, 1991 page 86 Kevin Crouch
