The mortarium report is to KFH's usual standard. The amphora
report is confusing in that it seemingly fails to take account
of the stamps, except to note them: the readings appear to be
derived from Callendar 1965.
According to the Introduction by P Ellis (54-5), the coarse and
samian pottery reports were prepared between 1977 and 1978;
"no pottery type-fabric series, and only a small proportion
of the illustrated pottery could be located. The pottery
illustrations have been adapted from the original drawings
prepared for publication in 1979". The introduction to the
pottery reports, by A Anderson &: p Ellis (94-5) indicates
that the "report on the Romano-British pottery by Anne
Anderson was completed in 1981, with limited revision in 1988-9
with assistance from Ruth Leary".
The report covers more than 10,600 sherds (172 kg+), but the
quantification is partial, unsatisfactory, and available only in
the archive, with the exception of the general fabric tables.
There are 102 pottery illustrations, plus 3 stamps and 1
graffito. The graffiti (2 in all) are not read, merely
illustrated (nos 6 & 106). 51 pieces of samian are
described, but none are illustrated.

Archaeol J, Vol 109, 1989 (publ 1990), (17-33), 25-29.
Not very useful report. The scale of reduction is erratic.
Consists mainly of Derbyshire ware (28 pieces illustrated) and
BB1. A total of 42 illustrations, mostly just rim sections.
There is no quantification, and no sources are suggested for the
mortaria. See also entry nos 423 & 424 in JRPS Vol.
