None of the sites involved produced especially large quantities of pottery, and therefore it is a wide-ranging mixture, with pre-Roman, Roman, Medieval and post-Medieval all intermingled in the report (much as this sort of material was found, in later pits). Nevertheless, many of the contexts are fairly closely dated, so these are useful finds.
