On the Cover
This rim sherd from a Neolithic vessel seems to have been decorated around the rim using what might have been the hoof of a neonate roe deer. It was one of a large number of sherds from at least 28 vessels of Early Neolithic Plain bowl type made in the mid-4th millennium BC. The sherds provide the first evidence of the Early Neolithic communities in the City area.
Analysis using a new radiocarbon procedure showed that this sherd came from a vessel used for cooking meat while others were used for dairy products.
The sherds were found in pits at Principal Place, Spitalfields, where MOLA has also excavated part of the northern Roman cemetery and where a late Roman gold and silver coin hoard was found (see cover image LA 15.11). Full accounts of both will be published in Transactions LAMAS (forthcoming).
