This report comprises an important discussion of the Anglian pottery discovered in Fishergate, which included local, regional and imported wares. The high proportion of foreign wares suggests that the site might have had a special role in international trade. The pottery evidence does not support the idea of continuity of occupation beyond the mid 9th century. This hiatus is followed by deposits containing late Anglo-Scandinavian wares.
