Four contributions from other authors are included, including Lisa Wells' geoarchaeological survey documenting especially the complex fluviatile regimes, an analysis of the copper objects by Vincent Piggott, touching on the variety and sophistication of metal-working techniques at the site, and an appraisal of the off-site work in the site's vicinity from Tony Wilkinson, which suggests modest suburban occupations only in Parthian and early Islamic times.

Previous works (Rouk 1974a, 1976, 1984; Rouk & Raukas 1989) do not interpret these deposits as fluviatile infills of subglacial cavities or erosional remnants of catastrophic meltwater discharges of the entire drumlin form (Shaw & Sharp 1987) during the Late Weichselian ice advance.
