Five heavily abraded body sherds Roman Black Burnished Ware vessels (BB1, from Wareham/Poole Harbour, Dorset) dating c. AD 75-410.

The fabric contains abundant sub-rounded translucent quartz, <1.5mm, rare sub-angular orange/brown iron stone, <1.5mm, occasional sub-angular white inclusions, <1.5mm, p…
