Eleven (11) sherds (Two (2) rimsherds, three (3) basesherds, and six (6) bodysherds) of several wheel thrown ceramic vessels of a Romano-British local white ware.

The sherds vary in thickness from 6.21mm to 7.51mm. In total they weigh 104 grams.

The sherds have a white oxidised fabric. This type of fabric is broadly consistent with a local type of Romano-British pottery, from Oxfordshire and typically dates from the 3rd to 4th Centuries AD (200 - 300 AD).

The vessel forms present consist of utilitarian forms such as storage jars and beakers.
