Mortarium, Carzield

A large shallow dish which has been reconstructed into a vessel using nine sherds. The majority of the bowl, including all of the base and a quarter of the rim are all modern cement. Most of the original sherds survive from the rim and pouring lip, including two sections with a clear potters stamp 'Made by Austinus' who is believed to have worked near Carlisle in the 2nd century.   There is a small ridge with detail around the top and some horizontal banding on the exterior. There are gritty fragments which have been incorporated into the interior surface, giving a coarse surface.
