14.9.69 Black painted design. 2 thick lines diverging from medium-sized black section. 1 curves round, the other is straight with a subsidary line curving away. Over the top of the main black region is a largely worn away blob of red paint and there is wavy incised line through the bottom. More incised lines cross the black lines with most falling on the curved one. Pale buff Background. Inside painted black 2006.20.0337.jpg
26.2.48 Above, paw and breast of couchant feline to right, incised details,in the field a shapeless blob. Below, hind quarters of animal to left, the belly indicated by a reserved band with a row of dots bounded above and below by a line of thinned black. Typical Camiran field ornaments and suspended groups of elongated dots. No traces on either zone of applied red or white. Between these zones a band, now simply streaky, but perhaps originally white-red-white on black. 2003.46.0057.jpg
38.4.2 Reddish-brown on pale buff ground. The false neck is decorated predominantly in a black band, with a narrow and broad black circular band in the centre of the false neck. The underside appears to be reserved, with a single thick black line at the base on the false neck. The true neck has a faded broad back band around and overlapping the lp. There is a broad black band at the base of the neck, and also a black blob on the side facing the false neck. On the shoulder there are six groups of narrow black lines painted horizontally. There is one group of either side of the true neck, both have eight horizontal lines, the one on the left has two rings of black to either side of it. The groups of lines on the other side, if faced with the true neck at the top, have groups of 6, 7, 9. 8 horizontal lines, all with a small ring of black in between them. The shoulder is outlined with a broad ring of black. The body has four broad black lines, which have faded to a reddish brown. Adjacent are narrow red rings; four above the first band, two within the first band, two within the second band, two or three below the second band. The fourth band does not overlap the base, which is slightly concave in shape, and has the suggestion of a foot ring.
73.9.8 The rim, leading to a band on the ouside is black, as is the entire inside of the fragment. Below the band on the outside is a horizontal 'S' shape pattern with small dots above and below it. To the left of this is a big black blob, which is slightly raised to suggest a handle ? Below the 'S' shape are four parallel lines, below which is a thin brownish band, a gap, and then what looks like the edge of a black circle. The second fragment has no rim and also shows a black blob which looks like it should be the base of a second handle. The inside of the fragment is againentirely black. On the outside of this fragment, there is no 'S' shape pattern or parallel lines, but there is a brownish band, below which is the edge of what seems to be a black circle, the same as fragment 'a'. 2002.97.0185.jpg
TEMP.2003.6.25 Fragment of the middle segment of a plate(?) chalice(?) with the stem that would have held it up broken off. Exterior, white, interior black with two slightly faded relatively thin white lines that would have made a circle, with a white blob (part of an X?) and a red dot on and in between the lines of the possible X within the circles.
TEMP.2003.7.3 Exterior white with brown patterns. Following one edge abour 1.0 down is a set of faded brown lines. Between the edge and these brown lines on one side are five brown lines perpendicular to the two lines, while on the other is a single parallel brown line with 5 short perpendicular lines crossing. Below the two brown lines is a brown blob that looks like it may have once been a horses leg, but is nothing in particular now. Interior is brown.
