Abstract: The n-dimensional generalisation of a theorem by W. H. Peirce [1] is given, providing a method for constructing product type integration rules of arbitrarily high polynomial precision over a hyperspherical shell region and using a weight function $ {r^s}$. Table I lists orthogonal polynomials, coordinates and coefficients for integration points in the angular rules for 3rd and 7th degree precision and for $ n = 3(1)8$. Table II gives the radial rules for a shell of internal radius R and outer radius 1: (i) a formula for the coordinate and coefficient in the 3rd degree rule for arbitrary n, R; (ii) a formula for the coordinates and coefficients for the 7th degree rule for arbitrary n and R = 0 and (iii) a table of polynomials, coordinates and coefficients to 9D for n = 4, 5 and $ R = 0,\tfrac{1}{4},\tfrac{1}{2},\tfrac{3}{4}$.
