Sherd; probable pipe terminal sherd of Medieval or Post-Medieval date. The sherd consists of a vertical wall fragment, which flares into a curved and projecting skirt or flange. One edge of the wall survives unbroken, identifying the nature of the ceramic. The join between pipe and flange has been knife trimmed.

A fresh edge break was not available for identification, but the fabric appears to be a dark reddy-brown ceramic with an irregular fracture and frequent inclusions, the nature of which could not be ascertained. The whole ceramic is covered in a powdery cream-white slip. Traces of mortar survive at the flange.

AD1300-1700

The vessel fragment is 70.8mm long, 55.5mm wide, 10.5mm thick and weighs 34.9g.
