The third cremation catalogue follows the format established in the first two. It contains the cremation urns and grave-goods from the south-east part of the cemetery, excavated in 1979 and 1980.
The brief introduction includes additions to existing stamp-linked pottery groups, and describes twenty-three new ones which include the animal stamp potter. A few new types of grave-goods are also mentioned.
This volume contains photographs and drawings of ‘Spong Man’, the pottery lid of a cremation urn in the shaped of a seated figure, unique in Early Saxon archaeology.
