red/oxp/lox/alh/crl/lnd/ppr/cnn/dur/D20 type amphora 'lids'
The most important pottery report to come from Caerleon in recent decades. The overall quantity of pottery is large while the method of excavation has enabled this to be divided into a series of stratified groups. Seven lamp fragments are described by Richard Brewer (p. 96).

A small collection which includes an anomalous pit group with late 1st century samian and coarse pottery of the mid 2nd century. Further excavation may explain the divergence or perhaps all are the result of tidying up on demolition of the fort in c160. This is the only pottery so far published from the Pumpsaint (Dolaucothi) fort.

exc/twn/mid-late 1st
Most of the pottery from this excavation was lost in a fire at the Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust Headquarters. That, published is not, therefore, a representative sample but a result of a (considerable) salvage operation. Thus we have a complete samian report but no illustrations, a small amount of coarse pottery and amphorae and a more complete sample of the mortaria.
