A fragment of a ceramic vessel dating to the early Bronze Age, c.2,400-1,200 BC. The fragment is sub-rectangular in plan and section. Breaks form all edges of the fragment and no indication of the complete vessel form has survived. The pot fabric is black in colour, indicating that it has been highly reduced, and is soft with frequent quartz inclusions. The outer surface of the fragment is decorated with twisted cord impressions forming two parallel lines with several adjacent thinner lines on either side of them, almost giving the impression of cross-hatching. The indentations are cre…

Pottery body sherd of a storage vessel, likely from the Middle Bronze Age (c.1600-1200 BC) but without decoration to confirm a date within the 2nd millennium BC.

The colour of the fabric is a light brown interior to more oxidised orange exterior. The curvature of the upper edge of the sherd suggests that the original diameter of the vessel would have been about 500 mm in diameter.

Bronze age to Medieval pottery vessel sherds. The pottery appears hand built, has rough fabric with large gritty inclusions and lots of mica. It has a thick section and some sherds have evdience of sooting on the outer? surface. It was found in a very tight scatter disturbed by tractor, near a Bronze Age barrow cemetery. So its probable that it is prehistoric, however pottery such as this is known in the area up to the medieval period.

A coarseware handle of Bronze Age to Roman date (2350 BC- AD 410). The fabric is hand-formed, black at the core on one terminal only (where the handle has broken away with part of the vessel wall fabric) and otherwise pale orange throughout and at the surfaces. It is hand moulded and contains abundant, ill-sorted quartz (1.0 - 4.0mm) grits, many of which erupt at the surface. Given the variable oxidisation of the fabric, it is suggested that this vessel was fired on a bonfire, in which temperature and oxygen controls are limited.

The fabric is an orangey buff colour on the exterior and a dark brown on the interior, with inclusions of pale felspar, dark augite and mica.

A sherd of poorly fired ceramic of uncertain prehistoric date. The sherd has a buff outer side while the rest is a mid brownish grey colour with occasional rounded stone inlcusions. The sherd is likely to be from a vessel however it may also be fired clay, or just a poorly fired vessel. It is suggested that this sherd is Bronze Age or early Iron Age in date. Several pieces of prehistoric pottery spanning the late Bronze Age to late Iron Age, of which these are some, were recovered from a small area around Brightwell Barrow in the 1920s.

Bronze Age collared urn consisting of twenty two body sherds. The fabric is tempered possibly with fine sand with some larger pieces of grog, flint and other stone (up to 3mm). Very little abrasion. The fabric is local clay fired on a bonfire with a flint temper. The sherds vary in size from between 55mm in length and 40mm wide and are 4mm thick. The sherds eroded out of a cliff section at Beckfoot Roman cemetery and were probably accompanied by a fragment of an incense cup.

A ceramic wall/rim sherd, probably of a shallow wide-rimmed bowl, possibly prehistoric but more probably Roman. The vessel was made from reddish or orange coloured clay which was tempered with sand and grit. The inner and outer surfaces are extremely worn and it is probably that the sherd was coated with a slip that has now worn away.

A quite thick, decorated wall sherd from a large urn of approximately 0.3 metres diameter. The exterior is damaged from being exposed to rain and frost in the plough soil. It would have had a smooth finish with only a few fine grits showing in order for the herringbone pattern of plaited cords to be impressed. The sherd is crumbling with a developed network of fine surface cracks and the decoration only discernable in oblique light.The orangey red surface oxidised colour extends part way through the fabric which then remains dark grey brown to just below the orangey interior surface. …

Pottery body sherd made of admixture clay. The fabric has finer inclusions of pale felspars and mica, and additional larger inclusions such as quartz not natural to the clay to make it an admixture. The colour is mid-brown on the exterior and dark brown on the interior of the sherd, and throughout the core. This type of admixture fabric is seen in Bronze Age vessels, dating from c.2100-1150 BC (Henrietta Quinnell, forthcoming).
