Virtually the only publication of any quantity of pottery from Lincs. outside Lincoln - at least instructive for Horncastle. Of value for assessment of the spread of Swanpool products. Of local concern & hampered by lack of stratified and/or dated material.

This report publishes an important small group of Iron Age to early Roman pottery, the first evidence for Iron Age occupation in the immediate environs of Lincoln. Since the Iron Age pottery was extensively disturbed by later occupation, it is published in groups according to the certainty of identification as Iron Age rather than early Roman (61 illustrations). The identifiably early Roman pottery was similarly disturbed, and is published as a type series (53 illustrations). These groups are supplemented by a selection of mid 1st century vessels of Iron Age type from a site adjacent to the west defences of the fortress, one vessel being an import from the North Bucks/Northants area (7 illustrations).
The only quantification feasible due to the small size and nature of the groups, particularly quantities of shell-tempered wares, was sherd count which is used to illustrate the changing assemblages over the initial phases of the site occupation. All vessels are catalogued fully with fabric descriptions and site contexts to relate them to the excavation section in the report. All the South Gaulish samian is fully reported with sherd count and weight by context.
