A basesherd of a wheel thrown ceramic vessel.

The sherd is 10.62mm thick and weighs 22.4 grams. It is 46.59mm long and 45.89mm wide.

The sherd consists of a basesherd in a fabric similar to a miscellaneous (unsourced) local grey ware. This Romano-British pottery type typically dates from 2nd to 4th Centuries AD (100-300 AD). Four pierced holes are present in the base, and the partial remains of eight holes are located around the edge of the sherd. These perforations indicate that this sherd originally came from a strainer type form.
