Fabric, firing, and surface description
Core and interior surface: reddish brown; exterior surface: grayish brown to gray. Granular fabric with hackly break has well sorted, abundant, medium to large, subangular and angular, light (clear, gray, and white, not calcitic) inclusions, some embedded in surface, and uncommon, small to medium, tabular, black bits. Ashy patches and black discoloration across exterior. Cf. KTH0981, KTH1665, KTH2409.
Preservation comment
Two joining sherds (1116+1520) preserve 35% of rim (19% and 16%), upper attachment of one handle, and roughly one quarter of body. Sparse, slight abrasion and slight chipping around edges; KTH1520 has area of scoring on exterior from roots(?), mostly clean breaks; scattered speckes of encrustation. Patch of post-depositional scorching and ash encrustation around handle(?).
