Samian ware listed by number/form and phase in
'Table' 4. Table 3 gives percentages (by sherd count) of the
main fabrics by phase. The pottery catalogue (Appendix 6) is
restricted to illustrated sherds, (69 in all), including Iron
Age pieces . There is no attempt to suggest sources, even for
Lower Nene Valley colour-coated ware, and there is no discussion
of the pottery. Some grey wares are of interest as they have
burnished geometrical designs on the external base. Much of the
grey ware is probably from Horningsea. The material is derived
from miscellaneous structures and features excavated in advance
of road construction.

A brief summary of the pottery recovered from a small part of a
large site lost to gravel extraction with no proper provision
for excavations. The site is adjacent to a villa site excavated
by Frend in 1966-69.

The results of field walking and excavation by local amateur
groups of a villa site a few miles east of Cambridge. Two areas
are denoted, Site A and Site B. Site A may have been an
industrial adjunct to the villa, Site B. A probable pottery kiln
was found on Site A.
The pottery is presented by site, and by feature within each
site. 65 sherds are illustrated for Site A, 25 from a foundation
trench. 268 are illustrated for Site B, 65 from two phases of a
foundation trench, 29 from another foundation trench, and a
further 100 from a third foundation trench. There are also 35
sherds from fieldwalking and 5 face-pot fragments. Other pottery
appears as small-finds, but is not cross-referenced. There are
two pie-charts for each site showing the proportion of coarse
wares, and the percentages of wares other than 'coarse'. It
is not stated what method of quantification was used for these.
The fabric descriptions cite colour and size/quantity of
inclusions using a very simple system. Some attempt is made to
source the pottery, though this is mainly confined to well-known
wares such as Lower Nene Valley and Hadham. Much of the pottery
is thought to have derived from the nearby Horningsea kilns, and
these vessels constitute one of the more important aspects of
the report. Otherwise there is a good range of 3rd-4th century
pottery, mainly Lower Nene Valley, Oxford (including the Harston
Obelisk potter?) and Hadham.
