This dataset comprises the fully catalogued and quantified pottery from Hayton in East Yorkshire. It should allow the downloading of the full dataset, so that interested parties can import the data into their own applications for their own research. It also allows the user to examine the fabric and form catalogues defined for this project and to generate their own catalogue for comparison with material from other sites.

There were 14,032 fragments weighing a total of 204.257 Kg from 662 stratified contexts (including a few topsoil and plough soil layers). This was represented by a total MV of 1,409, a total RE of 16,358% and a BE of 16,911%.
