This particular cooking pot was produced sometime in the Saxo-Norman period; that is, between the middle of the eleventh to the middle of the twelfth centuries. This pot is ceramic, 80 mm (about 3.15 in.) in height, 123 mm (about 4.84 in.) in diameter. It is dark gray in color, seemingly accented with other lighter colors. The wear on the color is most likely due to the age of the pot and the conditions it was in before its excavation. This cooking pot was most likely handmade, like many of the other ceramic cooking pots at the time.
