Pottery body sherd from an S-profile beaker decorated with a single twisted cord impressed in a chevron pattern on the beaker's exterior surface. The single twisted cord is more unusual on beakers, which are often comb impressed, but locally it is part of a tradition that continues throughout the Bronze Age, and is commonly seen on Trevisker ware. The fabric is a uniform light orange throughout with a slightly reduced interior surface and is likely to be made of gabbroic clay from the Lizard as it has light felspar, dark augite and quartzite inclusions. Beaker period c.2500-1700 …

Pottery base sherd with part of the foot ring from the base of a bowl, possibly a cordoned ware bowl dating from the Late Iron Age.

Christie (1978) illustrates a similar example from Carn Euny on page 415, Fig.58, No.14, which is dated from the 3rd to the 1st century BC.
