596 Bird, I, 'Two Groups of Late Samian from London', Rei Cretariae Romanae Fautores, Acta XXV/XXVI, 1987, 325-330.
A brief discussion of two unusual groups of late samian from London, one from New Fresh Wharf and the other from Shadwell, in the area of the London Docks. Both contain substantial numbers of vessels from Rheinzabem and Trier, dating to the mid-3rd century: comparable assemblages are unknown elsewhere in Britain. Full reports on both groups have by now been published, but this paper provides a useful introduction to them, and discussion of their combined significance.
