The rim is 'complex' with a finger-impressed 'pie-crust' pattern along the upper edge of the everted outer rim or flange.
The sherd is a light brown colour throughout and the underside has been black-coated. The fabric contains mica, felspar and augite inclusions, which suggests that it is made from gabbroic clay, originating from the Lizard.
Similar storage jars have been found at other sites in Penwith, such as Porthmeor, Porth Godrevy and Reawla, which date from the Romano-British period, from the 3rd to the 4th century AD.
Quinnell (2004) illustrates an example of a large storage jar from Trethurgy, with a similar pattern on its rim, on page 120, Fig.58, No.102, which dates from the 3rd to the 4th century AD.
Carlyon (1985) illustrates a similar example of a rim with finger impressions from a large vessel found at Porthmeor, in Penwith, on page 13, Group 7, No.Pm38, which probably dates from the later period of the site's occupation, c.3rd-4th century AD. 52http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/424467Anna Tyackex41218ROx4121822.16FieldwalkingWheel made4000013F2A2AC70111B56Anna Tyacke1SW4027CORNDaniel Pett8Unitary AuthorityCertain105391-5.636048From finderSouth WestCornwall43750Anna Tyacke28Cornwall10returned to finder10finds-204577ROMANReturned to finderUnitary Authority21St. Buryan14Fragment1608813414271ROMAN20457720050.086094CertainCORN-8299F6Octoberfinds 020.jpg437502016-10-22T15:08:37.121Z2007-12-30T23:26:58Z1RO9313Ceramic2003-06-24T23:00:00Z1Civil Parish0013F2A2AC70111BVESSEL50014778294201DCFCirca2003CertainCORN-7EBB30images/atyacke/2011-02-24T13:50:06Z
Pottery rim sherd from a bowl with a 'Cornish flanged' (Quinnell, 2004, p.124) rim. The flange below the rim is pointed and horizontal, but damaged, and angled at about 90 degrees from the body of the bowl. Above and below the flange are recessed grooves which help to define the flange from the body of the bowl.
The fabric is is a light browny grey colour throughout and contains mica, felspar and augite inclusions, which suggests that it is made from gabbroic clay, originating from the Lizard. The exterior surface looks as if it was originally black-coated, now mostly worn off, and then burnished.
Romano-British, 3rd-4th century AD
Carlyon (1985) illustrates a similar example on page 33, in her Group 39d, No.CW 52 from Carwarthen, which dates from the 3rd to 4th century AD.
Quinnell (2004) illustrates a similar example from Trethurgy on page 122, Fig.59, No.130, which is dated to c.AD 210-400.

Pottery cordoned body sherd of a round-bodied jar with two parallel cordons on the side of the vessel as it curves towards the rim. The upper cordon is about 6 mm thick and the lower one about 8 mm thick. The fabric is a uniform orange to light brown colour throughout, with an oxidised exterior, and looks to be gabbroic as it has inclusions of white felspar and grey augite, as well as mica. The surface of the pot has been burnished during manufacture and there are incised lines above and below the moulded cordons, helping to define them. It is well made and high fired, which suggests that it is Late Iron Age to early Romano-British period in date, circa 1st century BC to 1st century AD. Christie (1978) illustrates a similar example from Carn Euny, Sancreed on page 421, Fig.62, No.18, which is dated from the 1st century BC. Saunders and Harris (CAJ No.21, 1982) illustrate a similar example from Castle Gotha, St. Austell, on page 137, Fig.13, No.35, which is dated to the 1st century AD.

The surface and core of the sherd have been oxidised to an orangey brown colour. The interior surface of the sherd has been wiped, and there is the impression of the textile used on the surface, probably before reaching the 'leather-hard' stage while drying, in order to remove surface condensation. The fabric looks, from macroscopic investigation, to have mica, white feldspar, and grey augite inclusions, which are typical of the gabbroic clay that is found on the Lizard in Cornwall and used extensively during this period.
The style of the decoration makes this sherd comparable to Trevisker ware sherds excavated from the Bronze Age settlement site at Trethellan Farm, Newquay, reported on in Cornish Archaeology No.30 (1991), page 109, Fig.40, No.1, which date it to the Middle Bronze Age c.1500-1150 BC.36http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/424467Anna Tyackex13712BAx1371225.2FieldwalkingHand made-11500013F2A2AC70111B56Anna Tyacke1SW4027CORNDaniel Pett8Unitary AuthorityCertain105391Middle-5.636048From finderSouth WestCornwall43750Anna Tyacke41Cornwall10returned to finder10finds-204573BRONZE AGEReturned to finderUnitary Authority13St. Buryan13Fragment1608888414271BRONZE AGE204573-150050.086094CertainCORN-8261B6Octoberfinds 012.jpg437502016-10-22T15:08:37.114Z2007-12-30T19:38:01Z1RO711Copper alloy2007-12-03T00:00:00Z2007-09-30T23:00:00ZConstantinian_dynastyCivil Parish0013EA168E001989COIN70014777F399014192007CertainWAW-1EB080images/abolton/2011-02-24T13:21:43ZRoman coin: nummus of an unknown House of Constantine emperor, minted between 350 and 353 in an unknown mint.

The surfaces and cores of the sherds have been oxidised to a light brown colour. There are carbonised remains on the exterior surfaces of most of the sherds. The fabric looks, from macroscopic analysis, to be gabbroic, as it has inclusions of mica, white felspar and a dark grey mineral which could be augite. Gabbroic clay, sourced on the Lizard, was extensively used during the Iron Age in Cornwall. Late Iron Age in date (Carl Thorpe pers comm).

The surfaces and cores of the sherds have been oxidised to an orange to light brown colour. There are carbonised remains on the exterior surfaces of most of the sherds. A few sherds are also burnished. The fabric looks, from macroscopic analysis, to be gabbroic, as it has inclusions of mica, white felspar and a dark grey mineral which could be augite. Gabbroic clay, sourced on the Lizard, was extensively used from the Iron Age to the Post-Roman period in Cornwall.

The curve of the raised guard was used to protect the bar behind and beneath it, and the rope attached to the bar, from the open fire that the pot was suspended over.
The surface and core of the sherd has been oxidised to a light brown colour. The surface of the pot has a thick layer of carbonised material all over the exterior. The fabric looks, from macroscopic analysis, to be gabbroic, as it has inclusions of mica, white felspar and a dark grey mineral which could be augite. Gabbroic clay, sourced on the Lizard, carried on being used during the post-Roman period and into the Early Medieval period in Cornwall.
Hutchinson (in CAJ No.18, 1979) illustrates similar bar lug guards, as part of complete vessels from Hellesvean and Mawgan Porth, on page 87, Fig.42, Nos.1-2, which are dated from the 8th to the 11th century.
