A NOTE ON THE POTTERY ILLUSTRATIONS

 

The 215 illustrations depict a selection of the products of the various known and postulated industries operating in Kent during the first to early fifth century A.D., together with some of the imports from other parts of Roman Britain and the Continent that have been recorded in the county. The dating appended to each figure caption refers to the floruit of the type in Kent alone, unless otherwise specified, and to the

form-fabric association figured. These dates are only broad approximations, with speculative wider ranges quoted in brackets. There exist too few well-stratified, closely-dated recorded sites in Kent, as yet, for the more precise dating of the kind quoted by Gillam (1957, 1970), for example, to be attempted.
