Fragment of a mid-blue coloured glass of probable Roman date (50-200 AD). The fragment could be described as a globule and may be that shape s due to distortion and melting from being heated in a fire. If so originally it would have been a sub-oval shape in plan. It is possible that it was either a bead or gaming counter. The outer edge / exterior surface is smooth and a lighter milky blue colour; in places there is an abraded surface patina. The interior surface has a distinct white coloured streak through it. There is no evidence of the surface being ridged or grooved. The matrix of…

Fragment of a dark blue glass melon bead of Roman date (50-200 AD). The bead has been broken in half and 50% survives; it is irregular in plan and cross section. Originally it would probably have been sub-oval shape in plan with a central hole. The central hole is ridged by vertical striations and has an internal diameter of 11.4mm. The outer edge of the bead has regular lentoid shaped ridges formed by regular grooves like depressions. The bead has been broken relatively recently as the edges are crisp and unabraded, the matrix of the glass shows frequent small bubbles. There are also…

A small sherd from the base or possibly handle of a glass vessel of either probably Roman date (50-450 AD) or possibly post medieval date (1550-1750). The fragment is irregular and relatively thick. It has been abraded in the ploughsoil and the edges are either chipped or abraded. An iridescent surface sheen is present. Beneath this the glass is a mid 'cobalt' blue colour with small gas / air bubbles in the matrix. The form of the vessel cannot be suggested from the fragment, if from the base it is possibly from a carinated vessel with a small out-turned foot, if it were from a handle…

Glass gaming counter of probable Roman date (50-400 AD). The counter is circular in plan and D shaped in cross section. The edges of the counter are faceted and the reverse face is flat. It measures 20.1mm diameter and is 5.6mm thick; it weighs 3.17 grams. The overall colour of the counter is a dark opaque blue; however the upper face has two turquoise irregular spots and a much smaller yellow one. These spots are caused by inclusions in the glass and maybe deliberate or caused by happenstance. A direct parallel has not been found but due to other material recorded from this site a…

A large fragment of light blue glass, most likely to be a strap like handle from a flagon or globular glass vessel. The fragment is broadly sub-rectangular in shape and sub-rectangular with rounded corners in cross section. Both the short edges are broken and relatively unabraded. One short edge is snapped and the break looks relatively recent; a number of small holes are present in the section and these are probably gas/ inclusions within the glass matrix. The opposite edge is turned over at an angle of 90 degrees and would have joined with the body of the vessel. The break is also re…

Small glass vessel (unguentaria, phial or flask) of Roman date (100 – 200 AD). The flask is relatively squat with a sub rectangular shaped body and irregular shaped expanding neck / funnel. The base of the flask is flat but slightly sloped. There is a large concave indentation present on the base; this is due to the manufacturing / blowing process. Each of the four sides of the flask have a small oval indentation, presumably to allow the liquid to be applied in controlled drops. The glass walls of the flask are relatively thick with a large number air inclusions; these are in the sha…
