One (1) bodysherd of a wheelthrown ceramic vessel, of Early Post Medieval dating (15th to 17th Centuries AD)

The sherd is 7.59mm thick and weighs 8.3 grams. It measures 29.05mm in length and 31.69mm wide.

The sherd has an oxidised fabric, with a clear / light brown glaze on the interior surface. The exterior surface demonstrates a red surface wash. The inclusions appear to be a fine sand and iron particle mix. There are patches of a light green glaze on the exterior surface. The fabric displays characteristics similar to that of a local Early Post medieval glazed earthenware, probably of 15th to 17th Century dating.
