APPENDIX 3: 

The Fabrics: Corpora of known examples within the Main Study Area

Note that publication references are here given only for material not examined by the present author at first-hand. Where standard type-series of wares, or significant collections, exist in print, the forms in which these wares occur may be referred to these publications. Forms produced by the 'grey ware' industries of the Cliffe peninsula, Canterbury and so forth are only isolated where this is required by the mapping of these forms. Site numbers refer to Appendix 1: sites not therein listed are only recorded here in the cases of extremely rare wares. Fabric numbers refer to Appendix 2. Certain ubiquitous wares, such as samian (excluding pre-Flavian) and undesignated grey wares, have been omitted. (See also Green forthcoming; Pollard 1987).
