ROMAN AMPHORAE FROM THE GREYHOUND YARD AND METHODIST CHAPEL SITES, DORCHESTER, DORSET.

Author(s): D F Williams

Examination of some 1,463 amphorae sherds resulted in the identification of the following types: Gallic, Dressel 20, Dressel 2-4, Dressel 1- Pascual 1, Rhodian style, Carrot type, Camulodunum 185A, Camulodunum 186A, Camulodunum 186C, Southern Spanish, Peacock and WilliamsClass 59, Richborough 527, Fishbourne 148.3, Dressel 28,North African, Hollow Foot and ? Biv. Of particular interest was the large amount of Gallic wine that was imported to the site. Also the potentially early and late dates of some of the forms present. Dressel 1- Pascual 1 is normally associated with pre-conquest Iron Age sites, while North African cylindricals seem mainly to have been imported during the late Roman period.
