Abstract: The results of thin section analysis of Beaker pottery from Bos Swallet (Taylor, 1964) and Gorsey Bigbury (Jones et al, 1938) are discussed. Although local manufacture is suggested at each site, similarities in firing technology, paste preparation and temper selection may support earlier comparisons based on typology and decorative style (Taylor, 1964) but might equally reflect a more general tradition of pot-making.
