Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

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

Around 25% of the tile is present and consists of a orangey red oxidised ceramic tile with a patchy light green transparent glaze. The glaze extends down the original edges. The floor tile would probably have been square in shape. Two original edges survive.

The fabric consists of a sparse fine quartz temper (>0.5 mm), well sorted.

The tile measures 49.9 mm in length, 43.4 mm in width and 22.2 mm thick. It weighs 71.9 grams.
