Roman Pottery Found at Orpington.
by Anne McLeod.

A small group of Roman pottery was recovered by a member of the CIB Rescue Corps from a pipe-trench on the corner of Cray Avenue and Kent Road. This includes a piece of samian ware, probably from a flat dish or plate together with a large piece of a shallow flanged bowl of coarse pink fabric. Finds have previously been recorded from the area, as indicated on the Ordnance Survey 25-inch map and the site forms part of the large villa complex nearby at present being excavated by the Bromley Borough Council's curator at Orpington Museum. The sherds have been deposited in the museum.
