Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete plain glazed ceramic floor tile, of later medieval dating (13th to 15th Centuries AD).

Approximately 75% of the tile is present, in two joining fragments. It consists of a orangey red oxidised ceramic tile with a light transparent green speckled glaze. The glaze extends down the original edges. The floor tile would probably have been square in shape. Four original edges survive. The base is rough and uneven, indicating that it was made on a sand surface.

The tile measures 97.5mm in length, 96.6mm in width and 29.1mm thick. It weighs 380 grams.
