Flagons, jars, bowls, dishes and mortaria were made with surfaces covered in a cream-coloured (10YR 8/3) slip.
The sample belongs to the finer end of the Wilderspool spectrum with sparse inclusions. Trituration grits are common and comprise ill-sorted (1.5–4.0mm) red-brown and grey fine-grained rock fragments (average 2.0–3.0mm) and quartz (average 3.0–4.0mm). None of the grits on our sample are extant after thin sectioning and therefore were not photographed. Additional sherds may also contain quartz sandstone (K Hartley, pers comm).
