Thirteen (13) sherds (one (1) rimsherd, two (2) basesherds and ten (10) bodysherds) of several wheel thrown ceramic vessels of a Romano-British grey ware fabric, similar to that known as Savernake type.

The sherds vary in thickness from 6.87mm to 10.10mm. In total they weigh 225 grams.

The rim and base forms are suggestive of large storage jars.
