A fragment of ceramic building material, probably a roof tile, probably of Modern date, although the amount of Roman material in the area suggests an unusual Roman form cannot be ruled out. The fragment is irregular in plan and rectangular in section, broken and abraded on three sides with one complete, angled edge. It has a fine hard fired completely oxidised fabric. Fine linear striations on the surface may suggest a modern technique. Traces of white mortar are on either face of fragment. On one side remain traces of a rounded flange. The fragment measures 96.1 mm in length, 54.2 mm

Two fragments, a rim and body sherd, of a ceramic Samian ware dish with an everted rim with raised foliate mouldings.

The slip survives well on both sherds, giving the fine red fabric an added shine, as well as protecting it from wear. The body sherd is plain and curves slightly in profile so that it is probably from the base of a shallow dish as…
