The Blaxton kilns lie close to the kiln complex of Cantley, Branton, Rossington Bridge and West Bessacarr which was excavated with varying degrees of success since the 1950's. This is a detailed and well illustrated publication, very useful for the study of South Yorkshire pottery.

An extensive group of kilns, at Cantley, Rossington Bridge, Bessacarr, Branton and Blaxton, just south of Doncaster, was excavated in the 1950's and 1960's. This paper is a useful and detailed synthesis of the results, prior to full publication.

Not the final pottery report, but a useful summary of material from excavations and field walking. The use of microfiche reduces the value of the present report.

    534 Perrin, I R, Roman Pottery from the Colonia: Skeldergate & Bishophill, The Archaeology of York: Vol 16, fasc. 2, The Pottery, 1981, 45-111.
An excellent publication of stratified and unstratified pottery, providing the very useful beginning of a type series for pottery from the York Colonia. The discussion of Pompeian-red ware, African red slip ware and 'Eboracum' ware is extremely useful.

The first report covers a small group of pottery from the R-B site at Stonygate, near Pickering, including mortaria probably from Crambeck kilns.
The latter report includes sherds from small-scale 1940's excavations in the Norton area, and publishes material from a kiln excavated in 1949 at Grove Bungalow, Langton Road, Norton.
