Late Saxon imported ceramics

Pottery imported from northern France is present in the very earliest deposits of the Anglo-Saxon town. It seems clear that Exeter’s growth at this time resulted, in part at least, from foreign trade. The largest group of imported ceramics comes from Normandy, but there are also red-painted wares from the Beauvaisis and other finds from Brittany, western France and Belgium.
