One small sherd of medieval pottery. Externally glazed earthernware. The fabric is greyish-white with abundant sand temper. The exterior surface has been decorated with an applied thin circular blob of clay which has then been stamped with a large ring and dot motif. The decoration is of a darker grey with some red oxidisation. Over the top of the decoration and the rest of the sherd there is a thin coating of light green glaze. At thin walled sherd, most likely a sherd from a jug as these are the most commonly decorated and glazed vessels. Probably a product of the East Dorset industry.
