Two joining rimsherds of a wheel thrown ceramic vessel, of Medieval dating (AD 1200 toAD 1400).

The rimsherd consists of a local (unsourced) glazed earthenware, with frequent fine quartz inclusions, dating from the 11th to 15th Centuries AD. Due to the size of the fragment, it is hard to determine the original vessel form, but possibly an open bowl.

The sherds are 5.1 mm thick and together weigh 21.1 g. They measure 31.4 mm in length and 63.6 mm wide.
