Summary of Tiles

Pan tiles/cover tiles: No tile fall was recorded in T 26 P-R 62-71. The tile fragments, except for a few fragments, were fairly small. No complete length or width of a pan tile was found, while 2 fragments of cover tile preserved the full width (HDA I p101 #1, HDA II p 19 #1, HDA II p 49 #8).

Letters: No fragments preserving letters were found.

Fingermarks: Flanges: 1 fragment preserved 2 fingermarks (HDA I p53 #17) and 4 fragments preserved 1 fingermark (HDA I p193 #11, HDA I p241 #9, HDA II p 13 #18, HDA II p 47 #6).

Ridgepole tiles: 15 fragments of ridgepole tiles were preserved. One fragment preserved a raised front edge with diagonal slashes (HDA I p49 #3),

while the rest had ordinary or no finished edges (HDA I p11 #1, HDA I p13 #2, HDA I p29 #3, HDA I p103 #8, HDA I p133 #4, HDA I p179 #10, HDA I p229 #2-3, HDA I p231 #4-5, HDA I p239 #4, HDA I p243 #12, HDA II p 7 #9, HDA II p 19 #3).

Vitrified tile: A rather large amount of vitrified tile, including several large fragments, were found in the plaster layer of T26, P-R 62-71. Except for a few small fragments these all came from depth 0.9-1.0m. The largest concentration was found in RQ67 right above or in the the plaster concentration. Several of these are saved in HDA representative tile/plaster box 2.

The rest were dumped in the tile dump.
