There are also two fine concentric grooves between the inner and outer ‘ring and dot’ borders. The semi-circular …

A rim sherd from an early Roman Samian ware Dragondorff form 37 decorated vessel. The rim has an external bead, below which is a plain band (the fact this is fairly narrow suggests a 1st century date) and below this is ovolo (egg-and-tongue) decoration. Very little of the decoration below the ovolo survives. The curvature suggests a rim diameter of 15cm. Dimensions: 60.7mm by 47.6mm by 9.2mm Weight: 22.14g

Fragment of rim from a copper alloy vessel. This is probably a rim from a cauldron or similar vessel. The rim is pointed and has an external bead.

These were probably used to fix a plate of sheet metal (not present) to join a split in the vessel wall just below the rim. Medieval to post medieval. Possibly 15th to 17th century. Dimen…
