Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A Romano-British pottery vessel possibly dating from the 3rd or 4th century which is complete aside from the base and rim. It was found in the coal house of No. 6 when T. Webster bought the property. It is thought to be from the previous owners work as a quarry man and was probably found locally from a burial. The fabric and form are unusual for the southern peak and may be sourced from the East Midlands especially as it is similar to pots found in kilns at Torskey. (1,4).
