R P Symonds, (*)Colin Wallace, (+)Jason Monaghan & (.)Catriona Turner. See also entry nos. 177, 179, 180, 182, 189 & 190 (all Arch. Journal) and nos. 158 (repeated between 220 and 221) 221, 224, 333, 337, 342, 352 & 353 (all Britannia). There are also numerous papers or pottery reports in books or collected papers which are related to a specific county, and have therefore been entered above or below this section.
363 Arthur, P, 'Roman Amphorae from Canterbury', Britannia XVII, 1986, 239-258.
It is not made clear why this report appears in Britannia rather than as part of one of the series of recent publications by the Canterbury Archaeological Trust, since its emphasis is to report specifically on the types found at Canterbury, rather than to provide a general guide to these types, such as Peacock & Williams (entry no. 368), and P R Sealey (entry no. 235) have done more recently. The main objective appears to have been to demonstrate the wide range of amphorae received by the town, and the not inconsiderable expertise of the author to identify all of them. This approach might have been rather more justifiable if the report contained a little more general discussion of the implications of the material,, such as quantitative comparisons of amphoras present in similar conurbations of the Roman period, which could have been used to show the relative importance of the amphorae to the sites where they were found.

While the total amount of pottery is not large, it has interesting proportions of fine wares which undoubtedly reflect the curious nature of the site.
