Material fragmentary and heavily worn

Locus 2, 3: 2.9%

Produced 55 impasto, 3 coarseware and 2 creamware fragments.  Impasto fragments included 2 rims and 1 base.  Also a large coarseware handle fragment was found which possibly joins to the "well cover" found in CA42 in 1997 (see LSI ).

Locus 15: 0.8%

Produced 1 coarseware, 15 impasto fragments and 1 bucchero rim.  A large, very fragmentary and extemely friable part of situla with handle (#2, p. 149 ) also was found.

Material fragmentary but fairly well preserved.  Fairly large parts of vessels were retrieved including part of a full profile pot (#2 p. 129 ).  Predominant fabric type was impasto, few fine ware fragments were found.  A large number of fragments appeared to be coil made. Very little decorated pottery was found.  Notable finds included: impasto and coarse ware base (#5 p. 109 , #9 p. 117 , #5 p. 123 ), coild made rims (#10 p. 117 , #7 p. 115 , #2 p. 129 , #5 p. 131 ), ridged rim (#3 p. 113 ), orangeware handle base (#4 p. 131 ), bucchero base (#3 p. 107 ), bucchero handle (#1 p. 61 ).  Unusual fragments included #1 p. 57 , #1 p. 129 .

Material fragmentary but fairly well preserved.  Large portions of some vessels present including full profiles (#5 p. 85 ).  A lot of coil made ceramics (#1 p. 83 , #4 p. 95 , #2 p. 103 , #2 p. 79 ).  Fine pottery was scarce as was decorated pottery, except for a knob decorated fragment of impasto (#5 p. 95 , #3 p. 103 ).

Material fragmentary but well preserved.  High percentage fo orange ware results from numerous fragments of what appears to be one vessel (also see #1 p. 141 ).  2 complete profiles were recovered, both bowls of impasto (#1 p. 183 , #2 p. 185 ), as well as a large part of a ring-based closed-shaped vessel (#3 p. 185 ).  The only decorated example was fragmentary coarseware rim with incised striation (#4 p. 167 ).  Also a buccheroid fine base was found in this stratum (#1, p. 169 ).
