Four fragments of wheel spun ceramic vessels of post-medieval date. There is one rim fragment and three body sherds. The fabric of the sherds is a light reddish colour and is hard and fairly smooth with some lighter inclusions. The rim and two smaller body sherds have a shiny black glaze on the surface while the larger body sherd has a deep brown glaze. Both colours are common glazes found on the Cistertian Ware vessels described in Laing 2003, p107.

Rim sherd dimensions; 59.7mm x 52.7mm x 24.9mm; weight: 58.9g The estimated diameter of the original vessel is 30cm and roughly 6% of the original vessel diameter remains.

Body sherd 1 dimensions; 56.6mm x 41.9mm x 8.3mm; weight: 24.4g.

Body sherd 2 dimensions; 45.9mm x 33.9mm x 13.3mm; weight: 19.1g.
