The project archive contains files to accompany the letterpress volume; these include digital files that provide the typological discussion of the finds and the catalogues.

PDF files accompanying the letterpress chapters:

All the files are paginated and are distinguished from the letterpress by the addition of 'D' in front of the page number and figure number. They can thus easily be cited in other publications in the following form.

Biggs 2008, D7.2 and fig, D7.1 (in the text)
Biggs, A.D. 2008. 'The wall-plaster and mosaic', in Cool, H.E.M and Mason, D.J.P. (eds.) Roman Piercebridge (Durham), D7.1-11.

In addition to the files accompanying the chapters, there is a file that gives a full contents list for the digital chapter files and the bibliography and index (combined letterpress and digital files).
