Four rim sherds and one body sherd from a probably medieval (AD c.1066-c.1200) or possibly Iron Age to Medieval (c.800 BC-AD c.1200) ceramic vessel. The sherds appear to have come from a large wheel made vessel with a rim of at least 560mm in diameter. The fabric is hard and very coarse. It is brown in colour with a thick dark grey unoxidised core. It contains many large white shell inclusions. This type of pottery is called shelly ware because of these inclusions. The outer surface of the vessel is covered in black soot showing that it was used for cooking.

Rim sherd 1: Length: 164mm. Width: 116mm. Rim thickness: 17.3mm. Wall thickness: 9.4mm. Weight: 245.6g. It has a drilled circular perforation near the rim.

Rim sherd 2: Length: 111.5mm. Width: 83.0mm. Rim thickness: 17.5mm. Wall thickness: 8.9mm. Weight: 112.4g.

Rim sherd 3: Length: 55.8mm. Width: 50.0mm. Rim thickness: 17.1mm. Wall thickness: 7.9mm. Weight: 36.1g.

Rim sherd 4: Length: 50.8mm. Width: 51.8mm. Rim thickness: 17.1. Wall thickness: 8.2mm. Weight: 39.9g.

Body sherd: Length: 38.9mm. Width: 26.4mm. Wall thickness: 8.4mm. Weight 7.7g

Roughly 21% of the rim is present in these sherds.
