Not African Red Slip Ware, but rather earlier, Central Gaulish samian ware (rim from a form 37 decorated bowl). Still a significant find (and less difficult to explain than ARSW in combination with E Ware.I know 'ARSW' was what they were saying on site (and on TV), but it is very obviously not (shape, fabric, surface treatment).
