Plowright, Georgina (1978) Native Pottery: hand-made pottery in the prehistoric and Roman period in northern England and southern Scotland. Masters thesis, Durham University.
The thesis is a survey and catalogue of most of the pottery found in the area between the Clyde and Solway and the southern boundaries of Cumbria and Durham, and to which previously the label of Iron age or Roman native pottery had been assigned. The paucity of contextual information is demonstrated. An attempt is made to classify types for comparison with the small amount of contextual data. The result of this, combined with external evidence, illustrates the probable Late Bronze age origins for at least two types, and the presence of a Roman native pottery, but does not allow a closer type classification to be put forward.
