later/usf/ass/sts/clc/trb/nri/grc/gro/gry/ret/s x s/clm/
Settlement site abandoned cAD 40-60 and given over to agriculture for the rest of the Roman period. The unusually large deposit of pottery in the latest pm-Roman Iron Age ditch may be evidence of a rite of termination.
Location: Chelmsford & Essex Museum

434 Rodwell, W I, 'The samian', in entry no. 431, 92-100.
exc,col/?mil,cem,twn/pre-Flavian - Antonine ( stamped
Arretine platter)!
The (detailed) printed text is supplemented by a catalogue of the decorated samian on microfiche. Of note are fragments of decorated and plain early Lezoux ware, alas not in useful contexts. See Rodwell in Wickenden (entry no. 444) for a more recent comment on the paucity of East Gaulish samian at Kelvedon (more abundant on coastal sites than inland).

In a detailed interim report on the late 1970's excavations, Turner discusses a range of pm- and post-conquest imports (from Dr lB amphorae to Central Gaulish glazed ware).
