Pottery sherd, probably from a vessel of Anglo-Saxon date. The sherd has a red-brown buff surface, while the body is grey with white crushed shell inclusions. The sherd is undecorated and there are worn breaks on all edges. It is 20mm long and 14mm wide. The fragment was found with nine other sherds, and is possibly from the same vessel as finds KENT-D4A887, KENT-D4C866, KENT-D4D178, KENT-D4D682 and KENT-D4DBE5.
