3 - Another utilised bone

 4 - 8  Pottery rim piece hopefully I will get the dating from Tees Archaeology using this piece.




 8 - All of the pottery pieces found strongly attract a rare earth magnet, as with most minerals and bone found in this area, it must contain some kind of magnetite. 

 9 - 10  Capra Ovis horn.

 10 - This horn seems large for iron age early or late.
