The object is a probable base fragment from a crucible or mould which David Symons (Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery) suggests possibly dates to the 15th to 17th centuries, or Late Medieval to Post Medieval. The object is ceramic and is incomplete. The material is mid pinkish-red in the centre, and is very hard and brittle which suggests that the object has been heated at a very high temperature, either over or in a fire. The material has occasional sub-rounded inclusions of quartz (less than 1mm). The fragment is 99.4mm x 69.9mm at the base, 53.1mm high and 34.1mm thick. The…

Four fragments of Roman roof tile (tegulae), each comprising, at least partially, of the side flange. A minimum of three different fabrics are represented by the assemblage. The largest piece is light yellowish-orange in colour, has occasional grog (crushed ceramic) inclusions, and is similar, but not exactly the same, as two of the other tiles. The fourth tile is completely different, being much thinner in section and made of a more highly-fired, dark reddish-brown fabric with small gritty temper material. All of the fragments show signs of abrasion. The largest m…

Five fragments of ceramic box flue tiles from a Roman hypocaust system. The five fragments appear to represent at least four different fabrics - ranging from dull orangey-brown with fine stone inclusions, to deep orange and with much more frequent and coarse temper material. They also differ in thickness, perhaps suggesting the presence of several buildings or periods of construction. The upper surface of each tile has a series of scored lines, which is designed to act as a key for plaster. The largest fragment measures up to 100.3mm long by 68mm wide a…

A pottery body sherd, possibly of a Nene Valley ware beaker dating to the third century AD. The fabric is fine and yellow fabric and the outer surface appears to have an orange slip whilst the inner surface is dark brown and ribbed. The sherd has barbotine decoration in the form of a man wearing only a thong and possibly holding a whip. Vivien Swan has commented that the figure is likely to represent a gladiator and that gladiatorial scenes are not uncommon on Nene Valley ware beakers.

This record compromises a large number of pottery vessel sherds from a discrete area, namely an area of domestic dumping from a house of unknown origins that was demolished in 1817. The house is visible as a cropmark under the right conditions. The material was recovered by the landowner during the digging of a water main which prompted further investigation. Helen Walker of Essex County Council kindly scanned the material and provided short notes. A selection of animal bone was also recovered at the same time and is recorded as ESS-17E485. Tray 1 Slip-painted, unglazed sherds of Col…

Three sherds from a samian ware bowl, probably a Dragendorff bowl form 37. The larger sherd depicts a winged cupid on the left and a seated cupid on the right. There is a vertical corded divider to the right, with a worn and incomplete figure standing, perhaps on a mask. The figure might be Venus/caryatid. The figures depicted are very similar to those seen on a bowl from Stonea Grange, Cambridgeshire (Jackson & Potter, 1996, fig.136, no. 5). The Stonea Bowl was attributed to the potter Butrio based on its motifs, and dates to the Hadrianic period. It is a Dragendorff 37 form, a…
