Ceramics and Society: Early Tana Tradition and the Swahili Coast

Stephanie Wynne-Jones & Jeffrey Fleisher
Locally-produced ceramics are the most ubiquitous find on archaeological sites in East Africa and their study offers the potential to develop a robust understanding of activity and interaction within and between sites. In particular, understandings of the Iron Age societies that developed on the East African coast and its hinterland have been transformed by exploration of a particular group of vessels known as Early Tana Tradition or Triangular-Incised Ware. During the late first millennium, c....

Osteological Analysis of Early Bronze Age human skeletal remains in Tyne and Wear Museums

Michelle Gamble & Chris Fowler
Much of our understanding of Early Bronze Age burials in the North East of England is derived from excavations which took place in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In order to judge the reliability of existing information on the human remains recovered, and to provide additional detailed information, Michelle Gamble carried out osteological re-analysis of the human remains from several Early Bronze Age burials from the North East of England. The purpose of...

Coastal shell middens and agricultural origins in Atlantic Europe

Geoff Bailey, Nicky Milner, Naomi Belshaw, Oliver Craig & Eva Laurie
This project was funded by the AHRB from 2002-2005.

It also includes a few buildings that have been dated by high precision radiocarbon dating, and the names of buildings for which dating was attempted but not successful.

Engendering Roman Military Spaces

Penelope M. Allison
The research project 'Engendering Roman Military Spaces', investigates socio-spatial behaviour inside Roman military forts during the early Empire. It uses the distribution of artefacts found in forts in the German provinces to analyse the activities carried out within the various components of these forts. It then investigates the relationships between these spaces and the members of these communities - both soldier and non-soldier - who were likely to have been engaged in these activities. In...

North Lincolnshire Coversands Research Project

University Of Bradford
This project focussed upon the 'cover sand' deposits of North Lincolnshire and used a variety of prospection techniques to identify possible archaeological sites that were then investigated via excavation. A number of analytical techniques were then tested with a view to gauging their effectiveness with these types of deposits. The results obtained are positive, with clear potential for further work. They show the capability of these techniques to both aid in the identification of archaeological...

A Stamford Ware Pottery Kiln in Pontefract. Excavations at Simpson's Malt, Pontefract, West Yorkshire.

Ian Roberts, Chris Cumberpatch, Rob Ixer, Mike Hughes & Jane Young
A medieval pottery kiln discovered kiln in Pontefract is revealed to have produced Stamford ware vessels of a type previously only associated with Stamford in Lincolnshire. The pottery found can be equated typologically with forms and decorations that have been dated elsewhere to the Late 11th and 12th centuries. Both radiocarbon and archaeomagnetic dating methods, however, indicate a pre-Conquest date for the last firing of the kiln, in the early 11th century. The pottery fabric...
