CB57 yielded a relatively small amount of pottery during the 2012 excavation season. Of the nine loci, three produced no pottery at all, Loci 1, 2 and 7. The highest amount of pottery was found in Locus 3, 45% of the total recovered or 518 pieces. This was a large locus which covered the entire area of the trench and was defined by a light brown erosional fill soil. The pottery within this locus was for the most part impasto with creamware amd coarseware also present.

Loci 4 and 5 produced the second and third largest amount of pottery respectively (22% and 30% of the total assemblage). Both were once more large loci overlaying the entire trench. Like Locus 3, the most prominent type of ware present was coarseware, impasto amd fine impasto in addition to a few sherds of creamware. All of the pottery from Loci 3, 4, and 5 were particularly worn and eroded.

Loci 6, 7, 8 and 9 made up an ovular feature in the centre of the trench. In total 7 sherds of pottery were recovered from this pit. The pottery was less worn than came from the Loci above.

Pottery without a secure context from baulk wall trims consisted of only 7 pieces.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
