5 undesignated types; North Gaulish (Anderson);
miscellaneous forms including 'flower pot', chimney &
A wide range of forms and fabrics, both divided into type series: there are eleven classes of forms, 80 fabrics, and over 400 illustrations. There are several very rare continental imports along with exotic and local R-B products. The report includes an amphora with painted inscription, three amphora stamps, and numerous graffiti (including two on tiles), with comments by Charles Thomas (278-280) on Christian symbolism. There is a summary of ceramic discs/counters cut from pots and tiles. There is a general discussion of the pottery (281-3): there were 56 stratified groups, probably all incomplete owing to discarding by the excavator and the method of storage, which is described: the dating has some discrepancies with Meates' Volume I (The Excavations). See also a critical review by S S From in Archaeologia Cantiana, 104, (1987), 410-412.

Claudian-Neronian to early 3rd 
The illustrations include 22 mould-decorated pieces, 3 plain vessels (two with cut-glass decoration and a 'barrel-shaped' beaker), and 11 stamps.
Them am 82 descriptions, divided by chronological period and source, and subdivided by provenance in the excavation. The stamp descriptions do not use the notation used by Hartley & Dickinson. Them are some conflicts between this report and the identifications referred to by Meates in Volume I (The Excavations). (See article by G. Simpson in this volume).
Them is a table of incidences of forms by source region (SG/CG-EG) and period, the total being some 387 vessels, including a relatively high proportion from East Gaul, although some vessels are left as either CG or EG.
