Full Description

SK 373 328: A Romano-British pot was found on the spoil heap of a machine trench on the north side of Harvey Road by workman Gordon Smith, who took it to Derby Museum in August 1973. The pot, a complete, but small example of a Derbyshire Ware jar, standing 11.2cm high, with a cracked rim of 9.4cm in diameter, may be a "waster" from a local kiln site. No further archaeological remains were found in the trench. (1) Roman Derbyshire Ware, 4.5" high, with lid-seated rim; found in drainage trench along Harvey Rd, Alvaston, Derby , near old canal bridge. (2)
