Hi

I am a doctoral student completing a study of historical flooding and pollution. During some recent fieldwork I found several pottery fragments within a gravel layer and I was hoping somebody could help me to identify them so I might attribute some rough dates to the layer. I expect that there has been a lot of sediment reworking in this layer so the ages might vary - so far I have dated pieces back to 1853 as a ballpark figure! If anybody could help to identify any of the pieces in the picture below I would really appreciate it!!

Could be mochaware. Maybe a pub mug or tankard.

A C D E & F = looks to be 19th Century transfer printed earthenware, often referred to as Blue & White pottery. Mostly made in Staffordshire. Dinner services and kitchenware.

G,H and I are pieces of jam/perserve pots probably early 20th century but could be slightly earlier. Generally they look like fragments from c1875 to c1925.
