Four rim sherds of Roman ceramic vessels; grayware fabric. The fabric is hard and fine to irregular, light grey throughout and has frequent, usually well sorted, angular quartz and some mica inclusions.

1. A large sherd from a rounded bowl. It has an everted and downward sloping rim and convex side. It is decorated with a circumferential ridge immedieately under the rim, and three circumferential grooves on the shoulder, one single line above a pair. About 15% of the rim survives, and it would have had a diameter of about 280mm. 93.5mm tall, 135.3mm wide and 9.65mm thick.

2. A sherd from a bowl with outward sloping sides. It has a simple upright rim, with an everted flange. There is no decoration. The flange diameter was about 115mm but less than 10% of the rim survives. 71mm tall, 58.1mm wide and 8.24mm thick. 46.6g.

3. A sherd from a shallowly sloping bowl with a simple rounded rim emphasised with a circumferential groove immediately below the beading. The sides are convex. The rim diameter is about 120mm but less than 5% of the rim survives. 37.4mm tall, 66.3mm wide and 7.1mm thick. 21.2g.

4. A small sherd probably from a bowl with a flanged rim. It is 25.2mm tall, 44.5mm wide and 9mm thick. 13.2g.
