Abstract:
A report on pottery evidence used to reveal the changing patterns of ceramic use within the legionary fortress of Eboracum from c~AD~71 through to the end of the fourth century. A Cerialian date for the foundation of the fortress is confirmed by a quantity of pre-Flavian and early Flavian finewares, including a large dump of unused South Gaulish samian. The ceramic evidence is used to identify a gap in occupation during the years AD~120--60 and to date the rebuilding of this area of the fortress in stone to the Antonine period. There is a paucity of ceramics dating to the mid-third century, due to regular cleaning within the stone buildings. The fourth-century evidence points to a deterioration in rubbish disposal practices within the fortress coupled with a reduction in density of occupation. A discussion of the pottery found at the Purey Cust Nuffield Hospital and the Assembly Rooms reinforces the ceramic sequence at Blake Street.Specialist reports begin with the `Archaeological introduction' by R A Hall (669--80). `The post-Roman pottery' by A J Mainman (700--3), `Samian ware' by B M Dickinson & B R Hartley (722--5), `Early Gaulish imports' by V Rigby (725--8),`The mortaria: identification and comments' by K F Hartley (729--31) and `Lamps' by D M Bailey (732--5) constitute the remainder. The later `Catalogue' section (745--808) includes specialist comment with `Illustrated samian' by B M Dickinson & B R Hartley (745--69), and `Lamps' by D M Bailey (770--2). There are details of `Provenances' (809--10) followed by brief outlines of the sites at Purey Cust Nuffield Hospital and the Assembly Rooms.
