[NY 9864]. An account of successive structural periods is given, not dependent on unpublished evidence; a table giving dates derived from the whole site is also printed. The striking features are the re-arrangements of the structures in the central block apart from the headquarters building. In Period I there is a hospital and large granary, in II a commander's house, in III two granaries, in IVA a timber commander's house and a stone ?granary, in IVB a stone commander's house and ?granary. A curious long E-W subdivided building along the via principalis, found in several periods, resembles in two of them small-scale barracks. Dates and suggested garrisons are: IA, 73-c 87, ala quing, plus legionaries; IB, c 87-c 105, same; II, c 105-c 122, coh mill eq; III, c 122-125, coh mill ped; IVa, 139-c 158, ala quing; IVB, c 158-162/3, coh mill eq; VA, not a fort but ?depot, 162/3-c 180; VB, c 180-?; VC, ?-c 207, ?abortive town.

[NY 9538]. Still miraculously extant, but with an uncertain future, this fifteen-piece hoard has been rediscovered in Westmorland after 150 years. The drawings of its first publication in 1816 were found to be very accurate, but permission for further study has been refused. The hoard, formerly incorrectly named from Stanhope, has many objects in common with the Heathery Burn Cave bronzes and must equally belong to LBA 2; it contains phalerae, leaf spearheads, socketed axes (one unique), a gouge and hammer.

NY 829748; NT 774009. The two circles at Goatstones and Three Kings near Hexham are outliers of the Scottish series of "four-poster" circles, whose most characteristic features (eg. rectangular setting, grading of stone heights, SWINE axis, sepulchral function) link them with the Clava-Recumbent Stone Circle series of NE Scotland. Such associations as they have suggest a date for four-posters in mid-2nd millennium BC. They seem to have begun in Aberdeenshire, spreading to Perthshire and further afield. In four of the five excavated examples cremations were found, sometimes with urns. These are humble, local burial monuments, not observatories; thirty-four examples from Banff to Radnorshire are catalogued.

NU 230299. Two cairns had been cut by mechanical trenching; Cairn 1, badly damaged, had contained several ?cisted inhumations, while Cairn 2, recognised in time to be more carefully examined, contained a two-phase cist. This was of EBA date (cup-marked slab) with enlargement in EIA or RB times, and it contained the remains of nineteen successively-buried individuals. A penannular brooch with one of the last burials suggests a date of 1st-3rd century AD. The close parallel with the Lochend EIA cist (68/067) prompts a catalogue of twenty-five other examples of multiple- and single-burial cists from N Britain, particularly found on the NE coast. Difficulties and implications are discussed.

NT 998164; NU 011158. Excavation on these sites, which lie on the same hill about 1 km apart, was directed mainly towards obtaining material for 14C assay. Brough Law hillfort, bivallate and entirely stone-built, has a double outer face to the inner rampart. No earlier palisade was found. Material from beneath the rampart, possibly consistent with its construction, yielded a date in mid-3rd century BC. The settlement on Ingram Hill, a palisaded site followed by a slight ditch and bank with palisade, was suspected of being later than the normal floruit of palisaded sites. Material from the later bank gave a date in later 3rd century BC. Au

[NZ 2750]. A new plan of the fort is given, with an account of recent work including part of a building identifiable as the commander's house and evidence for the new lines proposed for the ramparts. BD

A re-dating of a samian fragment and a new reading of a lost centurial stone suggest that the Intermediate Stone Wall might be Hadrianic. The fragment, from MC 79 and originally dated not before 150, could on grounds of style have been made before 140. It cannot therefore suggest that the milecastle was not replaced in stone until later than Hadrian. The potter CETTUS, attested at Mumrills and previously dated 185+, can now be dated c 135 to 140-160, and D ... (Milking Gap) to c 115 to 120-140. There are grounds for believing that a lost centurial stone from the Intermediate Wall would link work there with work by the same centurion in both Broad and Narrow Wall sectors, creating a strong presumption of a Hadrianic date for the Intermediate Wall.

Further flights have revealed many more sites on the coastal plain and cultivated valleys, particularly the Till valley. These are roughly classifiable as: rectangular single-ditched enclosures, which may contain one or more round houses; rectangular double-ditched enclosures; curvilinear enclosures, including possible henges; possible barrows; and field systems. Additional structures at Yeavering Bell and a Roman fort complex at Washing Well, Gateshead, are new finds of particular interest.

NY 905830. Re-examination of the seven circular platforms on Dere Street previously identified as a Roman signal-post showed that they were built long after the Roman road had gone out of use; their function is, however, still unclear.

Although many difficulties surround the identification of Roman provincial gem-cutters' workshops, four intaglios in red jasper from S Shields and Corbridge have enough technical similarities to suggest they are products of one such workshop. The S Shields gem may represent Silvanus-Cocidius.
