Sherds of pottery from Robin Hood's Stride in Derbyshire. Some of the sherds have been reconstructed to produce the Romano-British grey-ware vessel pictured. There are also sherds of other vessels from the Neolithic, Bronze Age, Romano-British and Medieval periods. The site is a late Iron Age to Romano-British settlement and was excavated by J.Percy Heathcote and J.Clee Heathcote in 1938. These sherds show us that there was a lot of activity in this area both before and after this settlement existed.
