Samian is an important type of Roman pottery and we can produce identifications and reports at various levels. This might range from simple ID of source area with broad dates to more refined dates through identification of the form or the potter. Assemblages are always quantified in terms of sherd count and weight, and as EVEs where this is possible. Other statistical handling depends on the assemblage size, type and client requirements.
