Description Late La Tène occupation levels have been identified at Chartres and the amphora assemblage includes both Dressel 1a and 1b types (Villes ed. 1985, fig.39A,1-3, fig.39B,1-2). From the earliest levels on site `SXX' there are a number of vessels in TF1 including a large bowl[ (Fig.13,1) and an undecorated jar of our class 2 (Fig.13,2). An early Augustan date may be suggested for this material.

From Augustan and later levels there are jars of form C262 in TF1 (Fig.13,4) and TF2 (Fig.13,5-6) and finer wheel-thrown jars similar to C102 (Fig.13,7-8). There is also a fine example of a two-handled flagon (Fig.13,9) closely matching, at least in form, type F3b in the `Standard Fabric' of Rigby and Freestone (1986, Fig.1,F3b) - the ware appears similar to British examples but this has not been tested petrologically.
