|Locus||Sherds of Pottery||%|
All loci in CB 44 yielded pottery in 2011, locus 2 had the greatest amount recovered due to the fact that it was the largest one excavated. Impasto was the most common fabric of pottery in each locus, except for the baulk trim where there was more coarseware sherds. Locus 1 yielded 46 sherds (1 medieval, 20110016Locus 3 yielded 30 sherds (10 coarseware sherds, 13 impasto sherds, and 7 fine impasto sherds) however this locus was only opened in order to level the yellow-brown layer that was uncovered on 1/8/11 and was not fully excavated so the amount of pottery recovered could be misleading
and final analysis of locus 3 will need to wait till further excavation is carried out.
Locus 2 yielded the largest amount of pottery. Locus 2 was an olive-brown soil with large amounts of archaic architectural terracotta pieces within the matrix. 1 medieval sherd was recovered, however this was near tree roots and soon after locus 1 was closed and its inclusion in the locus 2 matrix could have resulted from bioturbation. There were 174 coarseware sherds (12 %) and most of these were pithos fragments. 913 impasto sherds (63%) were recovered from the locus along with 363 fine impasto sherds (25%). The majority of sherds recovered were small, pitted, and eroded, however several large and relatively intact fragments were found, especially as the locus became deeper. Almost all of the pottery sherds recovered were undecorated except for 2 sherds of slipped fine impasto (uncataloged). Only 2 fragments of pottery beyond the medieval sherd were cataloged ( 20110024 and 20110033
