Roman Samian Ware fragment: The sherd is a base fragment of an unknown vessel. The sherd is made from Samian Ware, suggesting the vessel is a table vessel, rather than for utilitarian purposes.

The base sherd of a glazed earthenware vessel of later medieval or post medieval date (1400-1700). It is irregular in shape and made of a hard earthenware. The vessel would have been wheel-thrown. This is apparent due to the central raised point on the glazed surface and the covex profile. A dark brown coloured glaze has been applied to one surface of the shard which is now irregular due to corrosion. The opposing surface is unglazed. The sherd measures 35.6mm length, 24.9mm width, 8.1mm thick. The fragment weighs 9.7 grams.
