Much gratitude is extended to the Department of Archaeology, Durham, for hosting the project, which enjoyed strong support from colleagues in the Department, none of whom ever once hesitated to provide assistance, with a special mention for Dan Lawrence: new patterns emerged with the application of his analytical innovations. The article was much improved as a result of the anonymous referee's insightful comments.

The project was funded through a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship (Acronym: ROMURBITAL. Project No. 300969) to support Jamie Sewell under the supervision of Robert Witcher, and was carried out in the Department of Archaeology at Durham University, UK, from September 2012 to August 2014.
