Description of Objects:
Fragments of Pottery, substantially sized pots used for storage, probably made locally, simple designs.
These examples of fragments were found near Lewin Street in a possible rubbish pit or back fill, therefore no date is applied. They are likely to be late Medieval, North West regions tended to produce yellow and green glazed white-wares common to this period. Red-wares were more common in the South.
Pots were often made by locals when required hence the simple designs and unevenness of the glaze
