Stone roof tile fragments. Four fine-grained fissile sandstone roof tile fragments, with opposed flat surfaces; only one of the smaller triangular fragments bears any evidence for water-rolling. These might be Collyweston-type rooftile fragments. The riparian location would make their transport up the Trent to arrive at this site by boat a possibility. Kindly identified by Wallace Collyer of the North Lincolnshire Pottery Research Group. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500
