exc/mil/late 1st-early 2nd
A fort site yielding a very small ceramic assemblage. Flavian
occupation seems certain. Early 2nd century occupation rests
rather precariously on sherds of BB1 which are unusual in
Flavian contexts this far North. Work on nearby forts (e.g.
Trawscoed) may resolve this problem.

This volume and the previously published excavation report (W H
Manning, The Fortress Excavations 1968-1971, Cardiff,
1981) are the 'structural reports' of the excavations which
produced the mass of pottery (particularly pre-Flavian fine
wares and locally produced pottery for the fortress, but also
much later pottery) which have given rise to Kevin Greene's
study of the early fine ware (Pre-Flavian Fine Wares, Cardiff,
1979), and to volumes on the samian, mortaria and
fortress/post-fortress coarse pottery (Johns, Hartley, Greene
and Webster, forthcoming) now in press. The two excavation
volumes summarise pottery and other dating evidence (citing the
fortress pottery type series where relevant) and this, together
with the feature dating indices (e.g. this volume, pp195-189)
are the key to relating pottery to features and to other items
from each context.

A heavily ploughed rural site, presumably of a farmstead. The
pottery sequence may be compared with nearby Whitton (M G
Jarrett & S Wrathmell, Whitton, Cardiff, 1981) and
Llandough (entry no. 811). The early calcite-gritted wares and
the Glastonbury-type pottery may be noted.

A heavily ploughed rural site with early occupation supported by
a Dobunnic coin. The latest coin is cAD 367-375. The site is
near Caerwent and close to a known later 3rd/early 4th century
kiln site (Swan 1984, 115-6). The report includes an excursus on
the Caldicot material (shortly to be supplemented by Barnett, ci
al, in Archaeol J, forthcoming). Spencer draws
attention to the
the later grey wares on either side of the Bristol Channel. She
concludes that South Wales was influenced by the NW Somerset
However, her tankard sequence, for instance, would suggest
that both areas were being influenced by the Severn Valley
Ware industry to the North.

A farmstead site with underlying round house. The stratification
is much better than at nearby Biglis (entry no. 809). The
ceramic assemblage may be compared to Biglis and Whitton (cited
in entry no. 809).

A useful stratified sequence from an area with little recently
published excavation. Surprisingly, the ceramic links seem to be
more towards the North West (i.e. the Cheshire/Lancashire Plain)
than towards the West (Severn Valley) despite the position on
the upper Severn.
