Terracotta floor tile found at Eshott Northumbria

Found by Brian Wardell at Eshott Brick and Tile Works.

Terracotta floor tile 9″ x 9 ” x 2″.

One side has 16 small holes which only go halfway through the tile – not completely through. These may have been to assist the firing process and allow moisture and gases to escape without damaging the tile.
