A brief paper on a sherd of Class Bii amphora from l'île Lavret. Subjected to both chemical and petrological analyses, the conclusion is that the sherd is indeed of Class Bis, and therefore probably represents some form of cross-Channel trade in the Saxon period.

Corseul, about 30km southwest of St Malo, in north central Brittany, is the ancient capital of the Coriosolites. Three phases of occupation have been identified, from the late 1st century BC to c20 AD, from c20 AD to the reign of Claudius, and from reign of Claudius to c80 AD. The entire range of both fine and coarse wares presented bears a remarkable similarity with forms in the Cam series, albeit on a somewhat reduced scale. The coarse wares include hand-made jars, and mica-gilt and lid-seated wheel-thrown jars, while the fine wares include both common terra nigra-type forms such as platters and dishes, and pedestal and 'bobbin-shaped' bowls. There are also Gallo-belgic flagons and ACO-type beakers.
