Full Description

One pit, recorded during a monitoring visit, contained a substantial quantity of Med pot. Most was from a single bowl of C13-C14 date. Other evidence probably destroyed by ground level reduction. The site is about 75m from the parish church. Most sherds recovered were from a large, shallow bowl, probably from Hollesley production site. It had a wide flat-topped rim and was decorated with finger-tip impressions at the shoulder. The bowl was 500mm in diameter and the surviving rim sherds represented 49% of the vessel. Two sherds from a Hollesley-type jar with a square rim and finger-tip impressions were also found, and there was a small sherd from a brown sand-tempered handmade vessel, perhaps of early medieval or Early Saxon date. Details in (S1).
