A substantial and very detailed report on a wide range of pottery. Broken into five main chronological groups, each of which is further subdivided according to individual sites. This approach deprives the report of a type series, and the evolution of particular types is therefore difficult to follow, but it does give a clear impression of the range of material present at any given period.

The value of this collection of pottery is probably in the dating it provides for the Berkshire Grim's Ditch and other linear earthworks Much of the evidence is in fiche with only the more diagnostic sherds illustrated. Location: Newbury

A very little samian (by Joanna Bird) mainly Antonine. The assemblage suggests a low economic status, but it is noted that bad preservation may have contributed towards this impression. A fabric series is presented in the text but illustrations are on fiche only. Journal of Roman Pottery Studies  Vol 5, 1990 page 130
