Fabric, firing, and surface description
Slightly granular red fabric with frequent small to tiny varied bits and occasional medium to small, subrounded, “lime” chunks. Surface displays thin, even wash slightly lighter than fabric.
Three joining sherds (774+856) preserve ca. 30% of rim and <25% of body. Slight, sparse abrasion on surface and large chips from rim; clean breaks; scattered, thin patches of encrustation; large patch of post-depositional scorching.
