Interesting collection because of its early date - little early material has been published from this area. Butt beaker derivatives; girth beakers; reeded-rim bowls. Several vessels decorated with panels of incised herringbone - a feature of the East Midlands. Also later types represented, i.e. products from Stibbington.
