Three sherds of Nene-Valley colour coated ware and two sherds of samian ware. One of the Nene-Valley ware sherds has a dark brown-black coloured slip whereas the other two have a light brown slip. All three are of a whitish fabric and are likely to have been bowls. In Lincolnshire Nene-Valley ware vessels are likely to be early to mid 3rd century in date. The two samian sherds are small undecorated body fragments.
