Library lists and John Ketteringham's list the situation has
improved. I've recently acquired a copy of the excavation report on
the Byrdall foundry in Exeter (an off-print from the Proceedings of
the Devon Archaological Society). It is good, and considers the
products of the foundry (i.e. bells and domestic vessels) as well as
the foundry site itself.]
I rest my case! All you've got to do is find the appropriate
archaeological society for each article and, bingo, you're in print!
I also agree with everything CJD said on the matter.
