One almost complete pot was found and in addition the house owner had a box full of odd pieces, including some Samian ware. She had no coins, although three have turned up in the next garden (PRN 1069).

Word or Phrase
period Roman About 43 AD to 409 AD (the 1st century AD to the 5th century AD)

The Roman period comes after the Iron Age and before the Saxon period.

The Roman period in Britain began in 43 AD when a Roman commander called Aulus Plautius invaded the south coast, near Kent. There were a series of skirmishes with the native Britons, who were defeated. In the months that followed, more Roman troops arrived and slowly moved westwards and northwards.
