Roman coarse ware produced in kilns around Brampton in Norfolk between c.ad 100 and 300, possibly to supply the Roman army stationed on Britain's east coast. Two main fabrics are represented: a buff ware used for the manufacture of mortaria and flagons; and a grey burnished ware used only for mortaria. Some vessels were stamped with the name Aesuminus, who is known to have been working in the period c. ad 160–200.
