1998. Casual find by  while digging garden. Shallowly buried, but may have surfaced in soil which had been excavated for a new extension.
Rim of a spouted bowl in medieval unglazed sandy fabric with sparse white ?chalk inclusions. The attached spout is circular and the flat topped rim has a rounded exterior. There are shallow oblique grooves around the base of the spout and a wavy triple groove along the top of the rim.
The spouted bowl is a very unusual form in medieval pottery, although it is more common in late Saxon wares. The fabric (for which an East Anglian source is not unlikely), the decoration and the rim form suggest that this piece dates to the 12th or 13th century.
