A rim shard from a late Medieval thin-walled earthenware vessel. The rim is roughly triangular in cross-section and slightly everted. The original diameter of the vessel would have been around 12cm. The outer surface is grey-brown in colour, while the core is pinkish-brown. The fabric is fairly hard and gritty and is tempered with plentiful quartz (<1mm) and rare dark iron ore (<2mm).

A mottled greenish-yellow glaze can be seen on the outer surface. The fabric is very similar to that of a spouted pitched described by Hodges and Mainman (1984, p.41) and thought to be of 12th century date. The source of this fabric was not indentified, but may be…
