A single ceramic fragment of unknown type was recovered early during testing of the ballast mound. Of thick, soft paste, this poorly tempered piece was at first thought to be a portion of a lug handle for a large earthenware storage jar. Alternately, it could represent a portion of one of the legs of a cooking brazier. Its provenience among the ballast raises the possibility that it may have been introduced as debris, along with a load of stones sometime during the sailing career of the Emanuel Point Ship.
Fig. 62. This curious piece of coarse earthenware may have been part of a handle to a large jar, or the foot of a common cooking brazier.
