Jar with high shoulder and short upright rim. Eight sherds, representing most of the vessel. Hand-made. The fabric is flint-tempered and patchily fired. The form is reminiscent of beakers in fine reduced Upchurch-type ware which are dated to the later first century, but the similarity may be misleading, as hand-made, flint-tempered vessels generally are likely to be pre-conquest and certainly pre/early Flavian in date. Probably locally made.
