A near-complete jar and fragments of around 20 other vessels, recovered from a sand quarry. Some from a number of small pits, but the nature of the site is uncertain - no trace of cremated bone.

This report uses the fabric and foam type series established  at Chelmsford (Going 1987, entry 364 in Vol. 2), with five additional fabrics. The dating evidence for each phase is given in the report text, here the pottery is catalogued by period and phase (presented under fabric numbers, in bold type).
Of particular interest is the material from Period V.1 (cAD225/250-300) which includes four pit groups containing the products of an unlocated grey ware kiln. See also entry 241 in Vol.2 for the latest Roman material.

exc/rur/late 1 st-early 4th
An excellent discussion by Going, but the first author's account of the dating evidence is a bit vague (and why does he dislike BB2 so much?). More importantly, why did the excavator publish two varying assessments of the dating evidence? The total assemblage is quantified by EVEs.

R, (ed), Exploration and Discovery in South-West Essex. A series of reports on excavations carried out by the West Essex Archaeological Group, 1990, (42-52), 50-52.
A small amount of Roman and earlier pottery from the excavation of a cropmark site. A fairly vague report.
Location: Passmore Edwards Museum

728 Clark, F R (and P M Wilkinson), 'The Search for the Roman settlement at Havering', in Clark, F R, (ed), Exploration and Discovery in South-West Essex. A series of reports on excavations carried out by the West Essex Archaeological Group, 1990, (53- 65), 56-65.
exc/rur,unk/lst-4th (mostly the latter)
Small-scale excavations following-up fieldwalking finds. "The intention of this report is to demonstrate the general range of ceramic artefacts from the site rather than to provide detailed evidence for the dating of specific features" (p56). This would seem redundant in view of the more extensive work undertaken by the Passmore Edwards Museum. It is often not clear exactly what some of these pieces are (e.g. the 'arretine' of fig 19.86).

  729 Clark, F R, 'The Lost Roman Villa in Wanstead Park', in
Clark, F R, (ed), Exploration and Discovery in South-West Essex. A series of reports on excavations carried out by the West Essex Archaeological Group, 1990, (66-85), 72-83.
exc/rur,unk/largely later Roman 
An exceedingly vague report, even by comparison with entry no. 728, hence the very few fabrics isolated above. The text of the report seems to indicate that a pit-group is lost somewhere among the pages of the pottery drawings.
Location: Passmore Edwards Museum
