264 Hartley, B & Dickinson, B, 'The Samian Stamps', in entry no.
260, 266-268.
For site details, see entry no. 260.
23 stamps, all illustrated, from late 1st to late Antonine.

265Hartley, K F, 'The Mortaria', in entry no. 260,196-199. For site details, see entry no. 260.
A useful series: 28 mortaria, 16 illustrated; 11 of these are wall-sided, and probably pre-Neronian. These were probably obsolete by AD 50. See also entry no. 269.

Partridge, C, 'The Finds', in entry no. 260, 52-99. For site details, see entry no. 260.
As noted in the comment on entry no. 260, some vessels illustrated here might more usefully have been included with the reports on the Gallo-Belgic wares. Fig. 46, nos. 33-37 must surely be BB2, or near approximations of BB2: unless the "later layers" referred to in the subtitle for this section are very much later, these must either be intrusive, or must push the dating of this sort of bowl back to the pre- Flavian period. There is no attempt at quantification of the types.

267 Partridge, C, 'Mica-dusted vessels', in entry no. 260, 99-101. For site details, see entry no. 260.
Some 26 vessels, all illustrated, all apparently jars, mostly lid-seated, except for one dish (three "small bowl-like vessels" also appear in entry no. 266, fig. 22). See also entry nos. 274 & 275.

Partridge, C, 'Pottery from the Burials', in entry no. 260,
For site details, see entry no. 260. occ/glz/grc/gro/osc/pph/rgh/nri
A type series of some 68 vessels, apparently mostly whole, mostly 1st - mid 2nd. The positions of the vessels as they were found is illustrated for 44 of the burials. Most must be relatively local products, though it is possible that the colour-coated beaker (fig. 98, no. 2) is from Bourgogne, or the Argonne.

Partridge, C, 'Other Pottery; Discussion of the Pottery', in entry no. 260, 335-350.
For site details, see entry no.260. grc/grg/gro/osf/osc/glm
Another type series of mostly unprovenanced vessels, showing further variety in the relatively local products. Mostly pre-Conquest. Includes some further examples of wall-sided mortaria (see also entry no. 265).

Peacock, D P S, 'The Amphorae', in entry no. 260, 199-204. For site details, see entry no.260.
A brief but very useful report on some 22,848 grams of amphora sherds, with a quantified approach. "The most interesting point to arise from this study is the wide variety of material being imported in the second quarter of the first century A.D." See also the comment in entry no. 260.
    271 Peacock, D P S. 'The Amphorae', in entry no. 260, 334-335.
For site details, see entry no. 260. amp
A further 26,096 grams, but because most was wholly unprovenanced, "there is not much to be said about this collection except to note the very high proportion of Dressel 1, which should be of the first century B.C." Lists are given of the proportions of the types present, and their probable origins, contents and date ranges.

272 Rigby, V, 'The Gallo-Belgic Wares', in entry no. 260, 159-195. For site details, see entry no. 260.
The Gallo-Belgic wares are what Skeleton Green is most important, at last in terms of pottery studies. What is most important about this report are the illustrations, which, taken with the Gallo-Belgic wares illustrated elsewhere in the volume (see also entry nos. 266 & 273) constitute a newer and better type series than that included in Camulodunum, and the discussion, which for once (not just in this volume) is as wide-ranging as the pottery deserves. If we do not yet have a comprehensive BAR.-type volume on Gallo-Belgic wares, this is at least a useful start in that direction. The fine-printed 'Gallo-Belgic warts from other features' section might have better remained as archive material, and there could have been more done with quantification, but these are minor quibbles.

Rigby, V. 'The Gallo-Belgic Wares', in entry no. 260, 328-334.
For site details, see entry no. 260.
Additional to the report in entry no. 272, this reports on some further unprovenanced vessels.

Tyers, P, 'A note on the Mica-dusted vessels', in entry no. 260,
For site details, see entry no. 260.
A short report on the possible Gaulish, Rhenish or Italian origins of the Skeleton Green mica-dusted jars. The connexions seem more to do with influences than with genuine movement of pots or potters. See also entry no. 275.

Williams, D F, 'Petrological examination of Mica-dusted jars',
in entry no. 260, 101-102.
For site details, see entry no.260.
Five samples of mica-dusted jars were examined petrologically.
The results are relatively inconclusive, but suggest the Rhineland or Italy as possible sources. See also entry no. 274.
