Sherd from either an urn or carinated jar of early medieval date (500 – 700AD). The sherd is broken and incomplete; the inner surface of the pot is lost due to a laminating fracture. What remains is much abraded. The upper surface of the sherd is decorated; the surface is burnished and a decorative pattern impressed. This pattern consists of a series of double horizontal parallel bands which have been formed by impressing the surface with a tool, the section of each grooved band is U shaped. Two areas of these double bands exist on the sherd. Between these two double bands are a seri…

Rim sherd of a relatively thin walled coarseware pottery ‘Severn Valley’ vessel. The sherd dates to the Roman period (50 - 410), however, not enough of the sherd survives to be certain of the form or size and without this a more specific date is difficult. The rim has a stepped appearance; in that the side wall projects above the rim and the rim extends at an angle of 90 degree from the vessel wall. The fabric is relatively soft with a number of angular and sub-angular quartz and grit inclusions; there are also a number of oval hollows suggesting the use of oolitic limestone which …

An un-diagnostic sherd from coarseware pottery ‘Severn Valley’ vessel. The sherd dates to the Roman period (50 - 410), however, not enough of the sherd survives to be certain of the form or size and without this a more specific date is difficult. The sherd has large amounts of burning / carbonization to the outer surface; it is also friable suggesting that it has been burnt was used in heated food preparation / cooking. The fabric is relatively soft, but brittle in places, with a number of angular and sub-angular quartz, grit and grog inclusions. The fabric also contains considerab…

Eight body sherds from Severn Valley coarse-ware pottery vessels, as the fabric, colour and thickness differs in each sherd it is likely that a number of vessels are represented in the assemblage. Not enough survives of the sherds to indicate the form or overall vessel size. The sherds date from the Roman period (50 - 410). All the sherds are irregular in plan and broadly sub-rectangular in profile; each curves slightly. They are also worn and abraded by movement in the ploughsoil. The fabric is a relatively soft fired earthenware with a number of small angular and sub-angular blac…

The fabric is a relatively soft fired earthenware with a number of small angular and sub-angular black grit (possibly coal measure rock / coal) inclusions. The fabric is also mica rich.

A relatively large sherd from the base of a glazed vessel of probable medieval (1150-1300) date. The base is most likely to be from the bottom of a large serving jug and has a ‘pie-crust’ styled decoration. The external face of the sherd is glazed with a relatively thick greenish brown coloured glaze which covers the whole of the surface and the external edge of the base. The base is very patchy and is more decorated with drip marks. The glaze on the external face is uniform in nature. The rim and body is missing. The base of the pot is likely to be relatively flat. The fabric of t…

A sherd from the rim of a vessel of probable later medieval (1350-1500) date. The sherd is most likely to be from a small jar or pot; it has not been sooted and so is unlike to have been used as a cooking vessel. The internal and external faces of the sherd are glazed, although the inner surface is much patchier than the outer. The glaze is a relatively thick yellowish brown-green colour. The fabric of the sherd is a relatively hard earthenware with a number of small angular and sub-angular grit, grog and ironstone inclusions. There is also a large amount of mica in the fabric.

A very thin body sherd from the side wall of a vessel of probable medieval (1250-1350) date. The fineness of this sherd suggests a high status function. The external face of the sherd is glazed with a relatively thin patchy yellowish green coloured glaze which covers the whole of the surface. The glaze is uniform in nature; where it has been abraded in the soil the oxidised orange colour of the pottery shows through. The glaze is currently laminating due to conditions in the burial environment. The base of the pot and rim are missing. A series of circumferential ribs are present but th…

Two conjoining sherds joined by finder to form a relatively large body sherd from the neck or upper side wall of a large vessel of probable medieval (1250-1350) date. The vessel is most likely to be a tubby jug or similar large serving vessel. The external face of the sherd is glazed with a light yellowish green colour glaze which covers the whole of the external face. The glaze is patchy in places and seems to have been applied by dipping with vertical streaks / run marks being present. An area of possible slashed decoration is present near the top of the sherd; this would form a band…

A relatively large body sherd from the side wall of a vessel of probable medieval (1150-1300) date. The external face of the sherd is slightly sooted and so most likely to be from a cooking vessel. The base of the pot and rim are missing. In profile the sherd flares slightly at one edge (probably the rim) and curves slightly across the width suggesting a relatively large diameter. The fabric of the sherd is a relatively hard earthenware with a number of small angular and sub-angular grit, quartz, and coal inclusions. There is also a large amount of mica in the fabric.

A sherd from the rim of a vessel of probable medieval (1150-1300) date. The sherd is most likely to be from a cooking pot although the external face is not especially sooted. The fabric of the sherd is a relatively hard earthenware with a number of small angular and sub-angular grit and iron stone (which have corroded producing brown stains) inclusions. There are also a number of regular oval holes in the fabric which probably represent limestone inclusions which have leached out or possibly be the remnants of an organic temper. There is also a large amount of mica in the fabric. The f…
