A small amount of pottery was recovered during a watching brief when large shafts were being sunk for the city drainage system. 3 figs. of illustrated pottery. It would have been useful if the fabric descriptions had been correlated with the Fabric Type Series established by the Gloucester City Excavation Unit in order to facilitate further comparisons with pottery from more recent excavations in the City. The illustrated vessels provide some useful examples for type series' comparisons.
Mrs K F Hartley also writes on two mortarium sherds in the same report, one of which was stamped - p 69.

Rural site near Gloucester with evidence of a polygonal structure, a rectangular enclosure, rutted trackways and possible evidence of iron working. The site is interpreted as a wayside shrine with
the discovery of a sculptured limestone head described as a "putative hunting deity". The evidence proposed for pottery production is rather inconclusive. (3 figs. of illustrated pottery).
