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 …
