Abstract

A study of 208.227 Kgs. of Early Second Century pottery from the Construction layers of the south-west corner of the Baths Insula (including the Piscina and Macellum) at Viroconium (Wroxeter), Shropshire. The study includes a catalogue, and drawings, of the pottery found, together with a discussion of the various fabrics and com¬pares the assemblage with a prior group of Military pottery. The pottery is used to provide a date for the construction of the Macellum, whilst reviewing the dating afforded by excavations in the vicinity. The work also includes a report on the submission to Atomic Ab¬sorption Spectrophotometry of 36 samples of Severn Valley wares.
