Sixtyone (61) sherds (Eleven (11) rimsherds, two (2) basesherds, one (1) handle and fortyseven (47) bodysherds) of several wheel thrown ceramic vessels of a Romano-British miscellaneous (unsourced) local grey ware.

The sherds vary in thickness from 3.26mm to 9.77mm. In total they weigh 613 grams.

The sherds have a dark grey reduced fabric. Subtle differences are present in the fabric types between sherds, which would indicate different sources of production. This type of Romano-British pottery was in production through the Roman occupation of Britain, from 1st to 4th Centuries (1 - 400 AD).

Vessel forms present consist of utilitarian type vessels such as storage jars and bowls, as the main base forms are small flat bases and rims are rounded everted forms.
