Object type: TILE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a medieval decorated floor tile. This is one of the 'two-colour' type tiles; inlaid decoration of white clay, then glazed with a clear lead glaze gives the tile a two-tone effect producing a yellow and brown coloured tile. These coloured tiles were very popular during the later medieval period. The method of inlaying a thin band of white clay into the surface of the tile, and that the completed design is slightly smudged suggests an early medieval date, from the late 13th century through to c. 16th century.

A total of nine Roman tesserae with a combined total weight of 153.39g. 1) Six tesserae, one incomplete, that are roughly square in form and rectangular in section.

They have a combined total weight of 92.58g. 2) Three similar tesserae but with darker red/grey upper surfaces, perhaps intended to represent a different colour, resultant from poor firing or exposure to high temperatures, or simply due to preservation in the ground. They have a combined total weight of 60.81g.

Fragment of a Roman hypocaust tile (43-410 AD). The small fragment would have been part of a hypocaust tile, used for the construction of the Roman heating system. It has been made from an iron-rich fabric with well-mixed quartz temper and has been highly fired to produce a hard tile resistant to thermal shock. The reverse has been roller stamped with a geometric pattern before firing, using a wooden roller with a carved pattern. This pattern of alternately raised and recessed chevrons was intended to allow effective adhesion of the tile with mortar. Some traces of the Roman mortar rem…

A Roman brick fragment with incised decoration (43-410 AD). The find consists of a corner fragment from a large Roman brick, probably a lydion or a pedalis. The tile has been made using an iron-rich clay heavily tempered with grog and quartz; the fabric has not been mixed evenly and these tempers gather in large striations. The fabric also contains a large number of air bubbles. The front surface of the brick has been decorated with a swirling pattern that was incised by the maker with a fingernail whilst the clay was still plastic. Such marks made pre-firing are usually known as sign…
