This ceramic sherd is a part of an assemblage of artefacts recovered from Clachtoll Broch in Assynt during community excavations led by AOC Archaeology on behalf of Historic Assynt as part of Coigach & Assynt Living Landscape.
The broch was suddenly abandoned due to a catastrophic fire which led to a rapid collapse of the structure, leaving an abundance of material evidence.
Over 100 individual pottery sherds were recovered, a large proportion of which are decorated. Decorations vary depending on the vessel: from simple dots and scratches to more elaborate incised decorations.
It was established that the sherd presented here is the only one remaining from the entire vessel. The pattern was created using another artefact recovered from the broch: a copper alloy pin, which demonstrates a dual-use to make decorative impressions on ceramic vessels.
