Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Pottery rim sherd from a bowl with a 'Cornish flanged' (Quinnell, 2004, p.124) rim. The flange below the rim is pointed and horizontal, angled at about 90 degrees from the body of the bowl. Below the flange is a recessed groove which helps to define it from the body of the bowl. The fabric is is a light orangey brown colour throughout and contains mica, felspar and augite inclusions, which suggests that it is made from gabbroic clay, originating from the Lizard. The exterior surface has been black-coated and then burnished. Romano-British, 3rd-4th century AD Carlyon (1985) illustrates a similar example on page 33, in her Group 39d, No.CW 52 from Carwarthen, which dates from the 3rd to 4th century AD. Quinnell (2004) illustrates a similar example from Trethurgy on page 122, Fig.59, No.130, which is dated to c.AD 210-400.
