5. Neck of jug of grey ware with light
red surface and trace of green glaze. Rim bevelled inside, with three
deep girth-grooves outside.
6. Rim of jug of fine grey ware with buff surface. It has a
small bridge-spout of characteristic late thirteenth century type. Along
the side edges of the spout and vertically down the front are rows of
notches made by a tool, probably in imitation of the stitched seams of
the familiar leather "black jack".
7. Neck of small jug of grey ware with light red surface.
The rim is thin and rounded, and the handle is roughly square in
8. Neck of jug of grey ware. Rim outbent and bevelled
inside, and prominent rounded moulding on neck. Broad strap-handle with
stab-marks on underside. The jug is of a type different from those
described above. It was shorter with a more ovoid body, probably similar
to a jug from Maidstone (Fig. 3, 2).
9. Neck of jug of grey ware with light red surface and
splash of green glaze on upper body. Rim outbent and bevelled inside
with small internal beading. Rounded moulding on neck above three deep
incised girth-grooves. Upper part of body decorated with incised wavy
lines and girth-grooves, probably continued in zones down the body as on
the Maidstone jug (Fig. 3, 2).
10. Rim of cooking-pot of grey ware. Rim outbent and
bevelled inside with row of stab-marks passing through to outside.
Decorated with row of finger-tip impressions above the shoulder. Part of
another pot with similar rim-section also has finger-tip marks in the
same position. Decoration of this kind on the sides of cooking-pots is
less usual than finger-printing on clay strips applied to the surface.
Sherds with similar decoration were found at Bungay Castle,1
but their position on the pots could not be determined. The complete
form of the Tyler Hill cooking-pots is given by a vessel found at
Maidstone (Fig. 3, 3).
11. Rim of large cooking-pot of light orange red ware. Rim
heavily flanged, bevelled inside with internal beading and row of
stab-marks on upper surface.
12. Rim of cooking-pot of grey ware. Rim flanged and
undercut, with thin internal beading and stab-marks.
13. Rim of cooking-pot of grey ware. Rim outbent and outer
margin deeply serrated by tool-cuts.
14. Rim of cooking-pot of grey ware. Rim thin with sloping
15. Rim of cooking-pot of buff ware. Section similar to No.
