A body sherd of probable Early Bronze Age (2400 - 1500 BC) ceramic vessel, the fabric dark grey/ black in colour and rather fine with numerous micaceous inclusions and small quartzite inclusions. The inside surface is very smooth. The outside is possibly burnished and decorated with a grid pattern of vertical and horizontal lines, possibly corded. The fragment measures 34.2 x 20.5 x 7.3mm and weighs 5.39g. Lorraine Mepham, Wessex Archaeology, comments 'I don't think it's either Roman or Saxon [in date] .... I reckon it's something in that Early Bronze Age range. The fabric looks a …

Six ceramic sherds, presumed from the same vessel.Prehistoric in date. The fabric is coarse material, dark brown at the core, reduced to pale to mid brown at the interior surface and variable at the surface between pale orange, pale grey, and grey-brown. The fabric contains an occasional sand temper, with rounded quartzite pebbles rare, and occasional angular black, iron-rich grits. Two of the sherds are rim fragment, showing an everted rim above an exterior ridge - this collared rim is consistent with food vessel forms of the Bronze Age period.

A coarseware handle of Bronze Age to Roman date (2350 BC- AD 410). The fabric is hand-formed, black at the core on one terminal only (where the handle has broken away with part of the vessel wall fabric) and otherwise pale orange throughout and at the surfaces. It is hand moulded and contains abundant, ill-sorted quartz (1.0 - 4.0mm) grits, many of which erupt at the surface. Given the variable oxidisation of the fabric, it is suggested that this vessel was fired on a bonfire, in which temperature and oxygen controls are limited.

Body Sherds: Six body sherd from a large coarseware ceramic urn of Prehistoric date. The material is hard, coarse, and coloured dark grey-black in the core and pale orange-brown at the surfaces. The fabric is laminated and tempered with frequent, ill-sorted, angular pebbles of an iron-rich stone (c.1.5 - 5.0mm in length). A fine micaceous dust is rare within the fabric. The natural iron within the stone has oxidised and is causing delamination of the fabric. A single fragment of possible burnt undiagnostic mammalian bone is associated with the ceramic sherds. Bronze-Age in date. …

Burnham Hoard 2010 T509: Ceramic: The pottery in the hoard appears to produce three seperate vessel bases, giving a minimum of three vessels associated with the hoard, however only the one remained relatively in tact. Area D: Block lifted vessel: The Burnham hoard contained one almost complete pottery vessel which was block lifted (hoard item T.D.2) before being deconstructed along fault lines to remove the metalwork contents. The fabric has a black core, and a batchy red-brown outer wall. There are flint inclusions throughout, however these are much more dense on the base of the v…

A pair of body sherds probably from Late Bronze Age hand made vessels (cf. Barrett 1980). They are characteristically flint tempered (up to 6.8mm) and an oxidised orange colour externally.

Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age ceramic beaker. Found in face of cliff c. 2m from the base, perhaps in slipped soil, Full profile extant, complete base and one third of the rim, about half of vessel surviving. Predominantly ancient breaks occur on the main piece. Two sherds join it at recent breaks. Five other sherd do not, and are bordered by both new and ancient breaks. These facts suggest the vessel was probably buried intact. The fabric is quite soft, and oxidised buff with red external margin in lower part and reduced core in thicker parts. It is slightly sandy with sparse and…

28 sherds of handmade Bronze Age to Early Iron Age pottery, weighing in total 338g. The sherds are mainly body sherds, but one large rim sherd does survive. It has an inverted rim. The pottery is undecorated. It has chalk tempering, which has largely leached out, therefore resulting in the production of lots of holes in the matrix of the clay. The pottery is a coarse ware, which has been lightly fired in a clamp fire, rather than a kiln.
