Summary

Recent research on the prehistoric and Romano-British remains at Mucking, Essex, has revealed much about the long-term settlement sequence of that important site. A minor, but potentially important, aspect has been identification of a small later Roman pottery assemblage from the site, apparently dating to a period without major occupation. This paper explores the contextual associations of this assemblage, and argues that it may represent very early 5th-century activity arising from the earliest 'Anglo-Saxon' activity at Mucking.
