A fragment of a Roman flue tile dating dating to the period c.AD 43-410. It is broadly rectangular in shape with a triangular edge. There is decoration on one side of either combed or rolled parallel lines. The fragment measures 105.31mm in length, 55.44mm in width, 38.56mm thick and weighs 141.76g. Box flue tiles were used to create flues in the walls of building, through which hot air generated by the hypocaust system would pass. The linear grooves decorating the surfaces are keying to improve the adhesion of wall plaster.

Four fragments of Roman ceramic building material in the form of box flue tile fragments, dating to AD 43-410. The fabric is an orange-red in colour with rare inclusions of small white stones (unidentified). The tiles are all fully oxidised. Two larger fragments have an L-shaped profile while the other two are smaller flat fragmentd. All are decorated with combed or rolled linear grooves, straight and curved. Box flue tiles were used to create flues in the walls of building, through which hot air generated by the hypocaust system would pass. The grooves decorating the surfaces are key…

Two worn fragments of Romano-British (AD 43-410) ceramic box flue tile. Both are L-shaped in profile and one retains two groups of parallel combed grooves on one face, arranged in a V-shape. Both fabrics are sandy and micaceous. One (grooved piece) is oxidised but grey on the outside surfaces while the other is oxidised to the outside surfaces and grey on the inside. The former measures 59.2x49.9x21.9mm, the latter 69.6x40.2x19.1mm. They collectively weigh 174.44g. Box flue tiles were used to create flues in the walls of a building, through which hot air generated by the hypocaust sys…

Four fragments of Roman (AD 43-410) ceramic building material in the form of a box flue tile. The fabric is a red hue, some of the pieces have a reduced grey core. The decoration comprises either combed or rolled cross hatchings. Box flue tiles were used to create flues in the walls of building, through which hot air generated by the hypocaust system would pass. The grooves decorating the surfaces are key to improving the adhesion of the tile to wall plaster. The presence of flue tiles for a hypocaust suggest a substantial building. Collective weight: 280.69 grams.

There are four lines of parallel comb marks on one face in a curve. The tile fragment has abraded breaks on all sides and weighs 58.7g. The other three pieces have a pale to mid orange fabric …

An incomplete Roman ceramic Lowther's Group 1 and Betts Die 58, relief-patterned flue-tile dating from AD 150-200. A similar tile is illustrated in Betts et al (1997:53 Fig.27a). The front is decorated with relief-patterned rolled design in the "W. Chevron" group style. Betts writes "Keyed with wooden rollers applied when the clay was still damp, before they were put into the kiln to fire. This was added so the tiles could be more firmly mortared into place." The fabric is fully oxidised and red throughout. Betts et al (1997:120) write " Context dating: at Winchester Palace example 11 …

Ceramic building material flue tile fragment. Orange sandy oxidised fabric with one sanded surface and the opposite surface combed in two directions before firing. The sand represents a separator used at the time of manufacture, while the textured striations would serve as a key for plaster applied on the outer sides of a box or flue tile. This would carry hot air from a furnace around a building, through its walls and under its floors, as part of a hypocaust system. The finder notes a significant spread of tile fragments and Greyware pottery in the vicinity of this find, which was ret…

Ceramic building material: flue tile fragment. Oxidised red fabric with occasional voids to length 3mm and with two striated surfaces meeting at an obtuse angle; all other sides or faces are broken. Fiercely abraded. The striations were made before the tile was fired and were probably intended as keying for plaster. They are a diagnostic trait of the outer faces of box or flue tiles used to carry warm air from a hypocaust furnace around a building. This unprepossessing object is of some importance in that it suggests the possibility of a Roman building of some pretension in the vicini…
