Pottery Analysis

All loci yielded pottery, with locus 2 having the greatest amount (96%). Impasto was the most common fabric of pottery in each locus. Locus 1 yielded only 4 sherds (3 impasto and 1 fine impasto). Locus 3 had 19 sherds (74% being impasto). While impasto was the most common fabric recovered in locus 2 (699 sherds, 46%), there was almost as much fine impasto recovered (613 sherds, 41%) and little coarseware (66 sherds, 4%). Locus 2 yielded the most pottery due to the depression present in the locus, 10 ½ lattes of pottery were recovered from the depression out of the 14 ¼ lattes of pottery for Locus 2 .

There was only 1 piece of medieval pottery recovered from CA 65. There was a relatively large amount of coil made pottery recovered in locus 2 (12 sherds). A coil made handle and coil made base were cataloged ( 20100062 and 20100093 respectively). 18 sherds had some kind of decoration on them, an incised rim ( 20100013

20100013
), a bucchero fragment with a line of dots and 2 stamps ( 20100007
20100007
), a buccheriod fragment with 2 lines of dots ( 20100011
20100011
), a bucchero handle with incisions ( 20100064
20100064
), and a handle fragment with stippled lines ( 20100092
