Five (5) sherds (2 rimsherds and 3 body sherds) of several different wheel thrown Medieval pottery types.

The main medieval pottery type present here is similar to that known as the Worcestershire glazed jug type (13th to 15th Centuries).

The vessel types that are represented here include glazed jugs.

The fragments vary in thickness from 4.84mm to 10.41mm. In total they weigh 39.8 grams.

There is a range of abrasion damage present on the group, with some sherds demonstrating relatively sharp edges compared to some sherds being heavily abraded. The heavily abraded sherds are suggestive of being present in the plough soil for a reasonable length of time, compared to the less abraded sherds, which may not have moved far from their original place of deposition.

All of the sherds have been photographed as a group.
