Pottery Summary

Baulk trim (loci 1-5):

Ceramic material from the baulk trim was worm and fragmentary.  Most common fabric was impasto, with significant percentage of other utilitarian ware, e.g. coarsewae and orange/redware.  Fine pottery was scarce.  There were few special finds: moulded rim frgament (Find #5, p. 12 ), 2 rocchetti (find #1, p. 13 and find #1 p. 15 ), a spindle whorl(find #2, p.23 ), a conical foot(find #4, p. 15 ), and 2 handles(find #2, p. 13 and find #3, p.25 ).

Section trench (loci 6-16):

Ceramics from section trench was generally in a good state of preservation but due to its positioning in the burn layer, many fragments were burned.  Predominant fabric types were impasto and orange/redware, although fair amounts of fine ware was found.  All material was recovered from the burn layer and its concetration was high.

Numerous diagnostic and special objects were found.  There are combined into following categories:

The only complete profile was an impasto cup with decorated tondo from locus 15.
