Lead alloy casting waste of uncertain date; most probably post medieval (1500-1800 AD). This fragment is from the neck (funnel / well) of a composite, probably two part, mould. The casting waste is conical; being oval in plan and D shaped in cross section. In profile the edges of the waste taper relatively evenly. This conical well descends into a rectangular runner which has been clipped at the junction of the well. The fragment is heavily abraded and so evidence of casting seams are lost. The casting waste is a grey colour. Casting waste is very hard to date in isolation but the pati…

Rim sherd of a thick walled earthen ware vessel of probable late medieval date (1350-1500). This sherd is relatively large and thick. It probably comes from the neck of a large storage jar or possibly a jug / flagon. The fabric is relatively soft with a number of angular and sub-angular quartz, grit, iron stone and broken burnt pottery inclusions. The fabric colour is two-tone, the outer a mid orange oxidised and the inner (core) a mid grey. This two-tone effect has been caused by low temperatures within the kiln and is typical of early pottery. The outer surface of the vessel seems sl…
