Somewhat similar pots to No. 1 are found in Pre-Flavian
deposits at Richborough and the date of this group cannot be much later
than early in the second half of the first century A.D.
3. A small empty flagon of thin buff ware with a grey core.
The mouth is three ringed, the handle two ribbed and there are two girth
grooves round the body.
This pot which was found one yard to the east of the
preceding group, had no associated finds, but contained traces of burnt
bones. It was buried at the same level as Group I, that is, with its mouth
just above the top of the gravel, but does not appear to have been
definitely connected with it, so it has been treated as a separate group.
. . . Date middle of the first century A.D.
This was located north east of Group A after an area due
north had been explored without result. These pots were found near the
surface of the ground above the gravel level and had been previously
disturbed perhaps by ploughing.
4. A flagon (imperfect) of fine, sandy, pink ware with a
buff surface. The mouth and upper part of the neck are missing, also
most of the handle which appears to have been two ribbed. This jug had
been used as an urn and was stoppered by another inverted flagon, the
majority of which was missing. This latter pot and the portions of
another which was found close by, are not drawn.

the surface is destroyed, though it appears to have had an excellent

round the neck and a narrow horizontal groove inside the rim. There were
other fragments of this ware, but it was not found possible to
reconstruct the whole pot.
