Still a fundamental work for the study of military pottery, but
the collection would benefit from re-study and re-publication to
modern standards. Pottery production probably Trajanic -?Hadrianic.
All typologically later vessels probably imported to site. Tile
manufacture possibly continued into mid 3rd C. Date of
abandonment of site uncertain. For partial reassessments see
entry nos. 346 & 164 (V Swan) passim.
Location: National Museum of Wales, Cardiff; material
collected during 1960's & 1970's in course of
