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…

10 fragments of Roman box flue tiles used in hypocaust under floor heating sytems, AD.50-400. All of the fragments are made from an orange terracotta clay with numerous inclusions of varying size. They have all been combed when wet to produce the expected striations that were used to help the overlying plaster to adhere to them. This plaster remains in the grooves of some of the examples.

A fragment of ceramic tile of uncertain date, possibly Roman. The fabric is hard and coarse and tempered with plentiful quartz sand (<1mm).

Large fragment of Roman (AD 43-410) ceramic building material in the form of a box flue tile. The fabric is sandy and oxidised, and the decoration comprises either combed or rolled parallel lines/cross hatching. 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.

An irregular fragment of a Roman box flue tile. The piece is of flat section and orange-brown in colour. The outer surface is decorated by a roller-printed pattern in which two areas of chevrons border a band that contains what appear to be the letters 'IX', with the 'X' being incomplete.

Similar chevron designs can be seen on a box flue tile from London (Brodribb 1987: 110), but no exact parallel could be found for this pattern. The possible letters may be tally marks relating to the counting of batches o…
