>At every excavation at which I am involved in North Devon, I now keep
accurate records of the contexts from which NDGTW comes, and the styles,
shapes, glazes and fabric of the pottery. This can be laborious work, and
you end up with a hell of a lot of sherds, but it does mean that gradually
you can build up dating evidence from association with other materials -
clay pipes for example for which North Devon has excellent dating evidence.
All I need now is a good database that will hold all the relevant info. Any
I usually use DBase IV, but not too user friendly until you know it well.
Most people in archaeol seem to use Access now, but hate it personally.
Excel could probably do the job. Or do you mean the actual structure of it?
