You name it, this report has got it... fabric and form series, quantification discussion, key groups, synthesis, etc... just about everything one could possibly want! Large important assemblages with continuity through time, lots of imports as well as locally-produced wares. Especially useful for the Iron Age-early Roman transitional period in an area where the Roman conquest produces few discernible ceramic changes.

712 Davies, S M & Hawkes, J W, 'The Iron Age and Romano-British Coarse Pottery', in Green, C S, Excavations at Poundbury, Volume 1: The Settlements, 1987, 117-123.
exc/set/late Iron Age (prob pm-conquest 1st AD)-4th/typ
The printed reports on the amphorae, the Pompeian red ware, the Gallo-Belgic wares, the samian, the samian stamps and the mortaria were prepared from comments by D F Williams, V Rigby, I Bird, B Dickinson, B R Hartley and K F Hartley, respectively. Further details of these reports can be found in the microfiche section. There are fabric and form type series for the coarsewares but there is no basic quantification. The discussion includes two tables and a diagram resulting from 'close-proximity analysis' and 'column-wise seriation'.

713 Farrar, R All, 'The Lost Roman Pottery Site at Bagber, Milton Abbas', Proc Dorset Nat Hist & Archaeol Soc, VoL 95, 1973, 93- 96.
A review of the interpretation of the Bagber site by its original excavator, Charles Warne in 1841, and its later re-excavator, J C Mansel-Pleydell, in 1891. The main evidence for pottery production seems to have been a clay-lined pit which had been subjected to intense heat and a quantity of pottery, some 15 sherds and one whole vessel were listed in the original records. Farrar suggests it was an industrial site of some sort, but not a pottery kiln. He also discusses the dating and parallels for the one-handled BB1 flagon.

The fabric and foam descriptions correspond with those of the West Moors report in the same volume (entry no 716). Both fabrics and forms are quantified.

716 Green, S, 'The Pottery', in Howard, S. 'Rescue Excavations of a Roman Enclosure and Field System at West Moors, Dorset, 1988', Proc Dorset Nat Hist & Archaeol Soc, VoL 110, 1988, (99-116), 107-112.

Includes fabric and foam types series, and quantification, by percentages.

717 Greene, K T, 'An unusual Roman Glazed Vessel from Woodcuts in Cranbourne Chase', Proc Dorset Nat Hist & Archaeol Soc, Vol. 93, 1971, 163-166.
A brief note on a sherd illustrated on Plate CXVI of Pitt-Rivers Excavations in Cranbourne Chase, Volume II, with a description, general comments on the ware, its dating, sources, etc. Also includes brief details on the samian found at Woodcuts: a South Gaulish Dr 24/25. and two examples of Dr 29

718 Hughes, E G, 'Excavations at 9 Bridport Road, Dorchester', Proc Dorset Nat Hist & Archaeol Soc, Vol. 111, 1989, (87-90), 89.

The fabric descriptions, catalogue and discussion are all by phase. There is recognition of a non-Wareham/Poole Harbour Black Burnished ware fabric(s), but no separation of which vessels occur in it.

720 Moore, W F & Ross, M S, 'The Romano-British Settlement, Common Mead Lane, Gillingham, Dorset', Proc Dorset Nat Hist & Archaeol Soc, Vol 111, 1989, (57-70), 59-65. Includes 'The Samian Pottery', by B R Hartley, 59-62, and 'The Pottery', by M S Ross, 62-65.
exc/set/lst BC-4th
Includes a fabric series; the forms are described according to other published series. There is a brief commentary, quantification is limited to noting the percentages present for most fabric types, along with a histogram, in percentages, which show BB1 to have been the pre-dominant fabric, at 38% (?sherd count).
