Pottery body sherd decorated with a single impressed twisted cord in two lines, with one line running horizontally, parallel to the rim, and the other obliquely at about a 45 degree angle. 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 incl…

Pottery body sherd from an S-profile beaker decorated with a single twisted cord impressed in a chevron pattern on the beaker's exterior surface. The single twisted cord is more unusual on beakers, which are often comb impressed, but locally it is part of a tradition that continues throughout the Bronze Age, and is commonly seen on Trevisker ware. The fabric is a uniform light orange throughout with a slightly reduced interior surface and is likely to be made of gabbroic clay from the Lizard as it has light felspar, dark augite and quartzite inclusions. Beaker period c.2500-1700 …

Pottery rim sherd from a large vessel, possibly an urn or large cooking vessel with a flat, slightly everted rim, undecorated with impressions of plant material on the external surface of the sherd. The fabric is an orange-light brown colour throughout and contains inclusions of slate, felspar, grog and augite, which suggests that it might be gabbroic or made of clay that weathers over the gabbro stone on the Lizard in Cornwall. Without any diagnostic decoration, the sherd is difficult to date, but the form and fabric suggest that it is from a Bronze Age vessel.

Pottery body sherd decorated with three impressed circular indentations, in clusters, running horizontally along the width of the sherd. The surface and core of the sherd have been oxidised to an light brown colour. There are carbonised remains on the interior surface of the sherd, and there is the impression of the textile used to wipe the interior, probably before reaching the 'leather-hard' stage while drying, in order to remove surface condensation. The fabric looks, from microscopic investigation, to have mica, white feldspar, and slate inclusions, which is t…

Pottery body sherd decorated with four vertical thumbnail impressions on the exterior of the body, running horizontally along the width of the sherd, possibly between the handle (missing) and the shoulder. Below these impressions are two deep oblique gashes or slashes which run off the edge of the sherd and might be part of chevrons.

Pottery rim sherd with a flat, slightly flanged rim and decorated with incised vertical lines within two horizontal delineated bands on the exterior of the body, running along the width of the sherd, between the rim and the shoulder. The surface of the exterior and the interior of the sherd has the remains of carbonised residue on it. Beyond this the surface and core of the sherd have been oxidised to a light brown.

Pottery rim sherd with a flat flanged rim and a carbonised twisted cord embedded on the exterior of the body, running horizontally along the width of the sherd for about 15 mm. The fact that the cord, whether it is made of hemp or some other plant material, is still attached to the pot surface suggests that the pot was fired with the cord, that was used to decorate it, still embedded in the clay. This may have been done to improve the depth and clarity of decoration, or perhaps to attach the pot to others while it was fired in a bonfire so that it would not move and possibly exp…
