Record ID: SOM-74CCA5
Object type: BRIQUETAGE
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of briquetage of Roman date. The briquetage, coarse ceramic material, is irregular in shape with only one surviving original flat surface. This latter is more oxidised than the core and bears imprints possibly of organic material. Briquetage is the name for coarse fired ceramic objects, evaporating vessels and supporting pillars, used in the production of salt. There is a known saltworks at East Huntspill and therefore unsurprising that this fragment was found here. The ceramic supporting pillar is not closely datable but salt working is known in this area from the…

Record ID: SOM-844265
Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small body sherd with sparse flat, angular pieces of stone (up to 5-6mm), and poorly sorted moderated quartz sand temper, with some finer material. The piece is broken on all sides. It is shallowly curved in profile. It appears to have a dark-grey slip over a light-grey core. The rough surface, especially internally, would suggest a medieval date, as would thin thin walls, although an earlier date cannot be ruled out entirely.

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A rim sherd probably from a glazed post-medieval open vessel, such as a large dish. The piece is now an irregular quadrilateral shape with a light-orange colour through the core to the external surfaces. The rim is everted and a thickened wedge shape. The body has a soapy feel with some micaceous inclusions. There is some dark-green glaze surviving internally within parallel radial grooves, the remainder of deep sgraffito work. The sherd has received some sooting to its external surface at one corner.

Object type: CLAY PIPE (SMOKING)
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
The bowl of a post-medieval clay tobacco pipe broken at its junction with the stem. The bowl is swollen, convex curved between the mouth and heel on both sides and projects out over the heel. The mouth is parallel to the stem. The sub-oval flat heel projects only a little from the base of the bowl and is wider and longer than the base, starting level with the stem. This large heel is stamped with the maker's mark, in this case the incuse letters GEO / WEBB / IN / CHARD within a stamped pellet border. The bowl has a milled row of indented triangles just below the rim, it is slightly ir…

Record ID: SOM-E93F47
Object type: PIPE (SMOKING)
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
The heel of a post-medieval clay tobacco pipe together with the broken stem and vestigial bowl. The bowl has been largely lost to a ragged old break. The flat is broadly circular. It is stamped with the maker's mark, in this case the neat, seriffed incuse letters . IEF ./FRY . H/[V]NT; no border is visible. The stem is 9.4mm in diameter at the break with an off centre hole 2.9mm in diameter. The maker's name, Jeffry Hunt, is well documented in the local literature with examples known from Taunton (Leach 1984, 145-146; refs. 17, 18), dated c. AD 1650-1690.
