Twenty sherds of Roman Poole-Wareham Black Burnished ware (BB1), 100-410 AD, sixteen body sherds and four rim sherds. The sherds mostly have dark inner and outer surfaces and a slightly lighter inner core; some have re-oxdised to shades from mid-orange to mid-grey from later burning others appear lighter as the darker surface has been lost. A few, mostly the rims, still have traces of burnishing but most are highly abraded with the original surface worn away. The fabric is fairly coarse, with the distinctive cods-roe fracture. It is tempered with abundant rounded quartz (less than …

Nine sherds of Roman greyware vessels, eight body sherds and one rim sherd. The fabric is mid to pale grey throughout. It is tempered with varying quantities of poorly sorted rounded quartz (less than 2mm), dark iron ore (less than 1mm), and sparse fine mica (less than 0.5mm), with frequent rounded voids (less than 1.5mm). The rim is everted with a rounded outer edge but too short to accurately estimate the diameter.The breaks are mostly very abraded with some fresher breaks. Total weight 37.67 grams.

The bowl of a post-medieval clay tobacco pipe broken at its junction with the stem. The bowl is swollen, convex curved between the mouth and heel on both sides and projects out over the heel. The mouth is parallel to the stem. The sub-oval flat heel projects only a little from the base of the bowl and is wider and longer than the base, starting level with the stem. This large heel is stamped with the maker's mark, in this case the incuse letters GEO / WEBB / IN / CHARD within a stamped pellet border.

Body sherd from a small cup, bowl or jar with almost vertical sides. The fabric is mid orange with some fine quartz temper. The exterior is decorated with white slip interrupted by four turned parallel lines at the top and indented ovals with dignal scratches across them below. A yellow glaze over all appears brown on the inside and areas where the slip has been removed. This form of decoration is typical of South Somerset ware of the late 17th to 19th centurys altough the scratched ovals are slightly unusual.

Two fragments of ceramic building material, both roughly quadrilateral in form. They both have oxidised surfaces, one light orange, the other mid orange. They both feature yellowy inclusions and seams from where the clay has not been mixed fully. Respectively, they measure 55.9 by 48.7 by 12.0mm and 74.55 by 36.6 by 12.4mm; a combined weight is given below. They are plausibly medieval in date given their thickness, although a Roman date ought not to be ruled out.

A fragment of Roman tile with combed decoration, probably a hypocaust flue tile. The tile has breaks on two sides. Part of the third side remains and is at 90 degrees to the top; the fourth side is bevelled out at 70 degrees, a break on the back running along this edge may indicate it was originally a box tile. The combing is a five line border and crossed made by the same tooling in the centre. The oxidised orange tile has coarse sand tempering with some grog and small stone inclusions.

A fragment from a tile probably of Roman date. One original short edge survives with the others all broken in antiquity. The flat upper surface has a semicircular arc at the intact edge. The lower surface is rougher, presumably for adhesion. The fabric is badly sorted with areas of different colured clay; the tile light-orange in colour overall.

One rim sherd from a Roman grog-tempered dropped-flange bowl. The fabric is medium grey with abundant grog temper and darker grey surface. The rim is plain with a triangular sectioned projecting flange on the outer side below the rim. It is too small to estimate the diameter, has abraded breaks and weighs 6.47 grams. In Hampshire tempering with grog was common in the second half of the 4th century, although was known earlier.

Two sherds of Roman greyware, a base sherd and a rim sherd. Both sherds have a medium grey-brown fabric with abundant, c. 30% fine sand temper. The base fragment has only a small part of the base on it but shows the convex wall rises from the flat base at about sixty degrees. The rim fragment has an everted rim, possibly from a jar, with a slightly widened and flattened top ending in a slightly rounded outer edge. It is too short and irregular to estimate the original diameter (L.: 57.1mm). They weigh 28.08 grams together.

A rim sherd probably from a medieval cooking pot (c.1100 - c. 1400 AD). It has a pale grey-brown silty fabric with c. 15 - c. 20% medium quartz temper; the inclusions have leached out slightly on the surfaces. The piece has a rolled over rim projecting at ninety degrees on the outer face (Th.: 12.45mm); below the edge it has a slightly concave inner side and convex outer. It is too small and irregular to identify the original diameter.

A rim sherd from a later Iron Age coarseware jar dating from approximately 300 BC - AD 100. The jar has a slightly outward turned rim with a flat top and rounded outer edge. Below the short rim the body curved outwards at c.45 degrees. Not enough of the rim remains to estimate the diameter as it is slightly irregular but it indicates a large vessel. The relatively hard fired fabric is only slightly scratched by a finger nail and has a mid-brown core and a dark-brown to black surface with burnishing on the outer side and rim. The fabric has abundant (c.25%) angular flint temper of c. 2…

A base sherd from a wheel thrown slip decorated Roman beaker. The fabric in medium grey-brown with abundant, c. 30% fine to medium sand temper, and some possible micaceous inclusions. The surface is coated with a thin, very dark grey slip. The sherd is triangular, and from the outer edge of a circular base. The straightness of the breaks perhaps suggests a certain deliberateness involved. A groove 0.7mm deep runs around the circumference of the base, following the curve of the edge 7.6mm in. There is a similar but wider and deeper groove on the outer side of the vessel 7.5mm up from t…
