A sherd of earthenware pottery probably dating form the medieval period (1350 – 1500). It is likely that the sherd is from a domestic storage or cooking vessel. The fabric of the sherds is a relatively hard earthenware with a number of small rounded and sub-angular grit, quartz, iron stone and burnt pottery inclusions. The fabric colour of this sherd is mid grey and the outer surface of the sherd is a mottled light orange colour. This two-tone effect has been caused by low temperatures within the kiln and is typical of early pottery. Due to the smallness of the sherd the diameter of …

Two abraded sherds of earthenware pottery probably dating to the later Medieval or early Post Medieval periods (1400 – 1550). Both sherds have a very decayed glaze present; this is a light yellow green colour and is probably a very decayed ‘Tudor’ green glaze. It is likely that both these sherds are from domestic pottery types such as jars or flagons. The fabric of both sherds is relatively soft and both exhibit a two tone (grey inner and orange outer) fabric colour. This two-tone effect has been caused by low temperatures within the kiln and is typical of pottery of this date. T…

Two conjoining abraded glazed sherds of earthenware pottery probably dating to Post Medieval period (1550-1650). The two sherds join along a recent break. The outer surface of each has a decayed glaze which is a brown green colour. The surface of the glaze is slightly pitted which may suggest that it is a basic salt glaze It is likely that the sherd was originally from a domestic pottery type such as a dish, jar or a flagon. The fabric of the pottery sherd is relatively soft and is of a uniform red / orange colour. There are a number of angular and sub angular burnt broken pottery incl…

Small body sherd from a Severn Valley pottery vessel, not enough survives to indicate the form, probably dating from the Roman period (100-400 AD). The sherd is irregular in plan and profile. It is highly abraded and relatively thin. The fabric is a very soft earthenware with a powdery surface. The fabric has a number of small angular and sub-angular grit, iron stone and grog (pottery temper) inclusions. The fabric also has a large amount of mica within its make up. The fabric colour is a uniform orange. There is no evidence of a glazed surface applied to the external face of the sherd…

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…

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. The fab…

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…
