A small piece of kiln furniture or 'spacer', sub circular in shape (40.8mm x 39.2mm; thickness: 12.1mm; weight:23.76g). This piece would have been used to fill or plug any spaces in the kiln, and would have had glazed material on top and around it, hence the glazing down the sides of the 'spacer'. There is more than one definite edge, with one broken edge, as well as the probable remains of a fingerprint on one of the surfaces. This 'spacer' dates between the late 16th - early 18th century. This find was found with records WMID-458D27, WMID-467B61, WMID-46E6C5, WMID-4748D7, WMID-47…

A small possible wheel thrown piece of coarseware kiln furniture or waste (35.1mm x 36.9mm; thickness: 10.2mm; weight: 14.54g). There is only one finished smooth edge to on this piece with some glaze on that edge. The piece is very abraded and badly made with large voids in the fill. It is difficult to identify a type or form of vessel. This piece probably dates to the late 16th - early 18th century. This find was found with records WMID-458D27, WMID-467B61, WMID-46E6C5, WMID-4748D7, WMID-47DA27, WMID-495752, WMID-49BD47, WMID-4A18A8, WMID-4A77C8 & WMID-5EC7C6.

A small wheel thrown ceramic foot ring base sherd (41.2mm x 35.9mm; thickness: 13.8mm; weight: 15.26g). A coarseware covered on one side with a dark brown-black glaze on top of a dark red slip. The fill is salmon pink colour with sparse large inclusions. The sherd could have been used as possible kiln waste. This sherd dates to the 18th, or even 17th century.

A roughly hand made circular ceramic piece of kiln furniture or 'spacer' (diameter: 60.9mm; thickness: 15.2mm; weight: 53.85g). This 'spacer' would have been used to fill or plug any gaps in the kiln during the firing process. There are some areas of light brown glaze that have run down the sides of the piece, presumably from the glazed vessels above or to the side. There are two clear finger marks on the smoother surface of the piece. This piece of kiln furniture or 'spacer' probably dates to the late 16th - early 18th century.

A large wheel thrown sherd of coarseware kiln waste (91.2mm x 69.1mm; thickness: 12.2mm; weigth: 113.12g). This broken (including glaze on one of the breaks) sherd has mis-shapen and distorted during firing and have areas on one surface of bubbling/ blistering indicating very high temperatures. The sherd is poorly made with a reddish-grey fill with frequent large inclusions and small gaps. On the opposite side from the blistering surface, there is a distinctive ridge running across at a sligth curve, indicating where another vessel had been laid during the firing process. This vess…

A highly vitrified and over-fired base and side Black Ware sherd (44mm x 57.1mm x 28.1mm; thickness: 11.5mm; weight: 39.97g). By firing to such a high temperature, the clay seems to have melted with the surface blistering, and the vessel has effctively become a stoneware. The sherd is most likely to be a fragment of kiln waste, dating to the late 16th - early 18th century. Black wares are essentially a soft to hard-fired thrown earthenware, and in this case, has a grey fabric colour. The lead glaze probably draws iron from the body, which gives the dark colour. Black wares are typ…

A small sherd of late Iron Age pottery (35mm x 41mm; thickness: 8.5mm; weight: 14.00g). A fairly smooth, hard and thick probable sand-tempered fabric with large inclusions throughout and protruding out of the surface. The sherd is a light brown/ red colourwhile the inner surface is almost black in places. This sherd is very similar to examples found during excavations at Gussage All Saints in Dorset, particularly the type classified as Fabric A/C (Wainwright, 1979, pages 49-51). From these other examples, this sherd may have come from a bead rim vessel or flat rimmed barrel jar. …

This sherd is very similar to examples found during excavations at Gussage All Saints in Dorset that have been classed as Fabric A/B. From these other examples, we could suggest that this sherd may have come from a bead rim vessel or a flat rimmed barrel jar. In general, these vessels were…

A wheel-thrown base (and side) sherd of probable Mancetter-Hartshill mortaria (54mm x 56mm with a thickness of 11.5mm at the edge of the base; weight: 45.79g). The sherd has a fine-textured and powdery fabric with an off-white core and inclusions of fine quartz and occasional red-brown and white particles grit. The grit seems to be fairly worn which may indicate that the vessel was used to a fair extent. This type of mortaria has its main source at Mancetter and Hartshill on the Warwickshire/ Leicestershire border, where many kilns have been recorded and excavated. Unfortunately, wi…

The counter is an oval shape in plan, and domed in profile. The body of the counter is made from a blue glass, which has an applied border of white glass. Within the border, at intervals, there are small blobs of applied white glass as decoration. The base of the counter has an irregular spiral, as if formed during manufacture of the counter. Dr. Henderson (Nottingham University) offered the identification, but did comment that he had not seen a counter quite like this before. Refer to the archive file for his e-mail.
