Pottery Summary

Pottery Summary

Excavations in the CD12 area yielded a total of 271 sherds.  Trench yield varied by size.  Impasto made up the majority of fabrics (239) with fineware (16) a very distant second.  Coarseware (13), Bucchero (2), and Medieval pottery (1) were present in very small amounts.  There were 81 diagnostic sherds, mostly rims (60).

Most of the sherds are very worn and almost no joins were found.

In the following pages, pottery will be recorded by trench.
