    • Glass fragment probably from a bowl or globular or cylindrical urn or similar vessel of probable Roman date, AD 200-410. The fragment is roughly trapezoidal in plan, sub-rectangular in cross-section and slightly convex in section. The edges are roughly broken and both the upper and lower surfaces are scratched. It is formed from very pale blue glass and the bubbles show that it is hand-made. There are possibly circumferential striations in the glass with no evidence of mould line. The fragment is too small to be confident when projecting a rim diameter. The fragment shares similarities with SOM-D8B7B2, BH-85E40E and Wilt-CFCA62 (PAS database). Length 30mm, width 28mm, weight 2.10g.
