37 sherds of a handmade ceramic vessel of modern date. The sherds are from a hematite burnished ware vessel with an oxidized fabric.

A shard of a Medieval ceramic vessel. The shard is part of the base and part of the wall which is at a 45 degree angle tot eh base. The fabric is fairly hard but very worn, being erroded by water action. It is pink throughout with yellow clay and red grog inclusions. There are also occasional pieces of quartz.

Object type: KEY (LOCKING)

A copper-alloy object, probably a slide key from a barb-spring padlock, of probable Medieval date. It which is in excellent condition despite being broken into two pieces and glued together.

A wall fragment from a large stoneware vessel dating from the early 19th century. The wall is about 15mm thick and is clearly from a large vessel. It is decorated with an applied royal coat of arms with traces of red glaze surviving on it. The crest allows the vessel to be dated to 1801 - 1837 AD because the arrangement of arms with a central escutcheon was adopted in 1801 and the escutcheon was removed on the ascension of Queen Victoria in 1837. Small parts of other applied decoration can be seen near the breaks on both sides of the crest. The vessel is made from a tan coloured stone…
