Quick Reference


Various styles of pottery circulating in southern England from the first half of the 1st millennium bc, superseding the previously common and widespread Deverel–Rimbury traditions. Post‐Deverel–Rimbury wares include a fine‐ware component comprising mainly thin‐walled plain jars, bowls, and cups, together with a wide range of coarsewares, among them large storage vessels. Early Post‐Deverel–Rimbury ware tends to be plain (PPDR), but from the 8th century onwards there is an increase in the amount of decoration applied, especially incised lines, fingertip impressions, and slight cordons, and this is often referred to as decorated Post‐Deverel–Rimbury (DPDR).
