If the CO2 is available from the firing fuel, the age of the shell will reflect the age of the fuel.
Also, one must consider the homogeneity of the reformed carbonate in that case.
Please make sure to indicate on the data sheet if the sherd needs to be returned.
If the clay is older than the time of firing, the carbonate age will also be older than the time of firing.
Hundreds of shapes have been identified, but there still remain many gaps in the record and users of the catalogue are invited to contribute.

'Remued' was a line of art pottery dating from the early 1930s to the mid-1950s.
The name has become so associated with its characteristic drip-glaze style that it sometimes even appears in descriptions of other pottery, as in 'van Briggle remued'.
You are welcome to request that we contact you after the pretreatment to discuss options for AMS dating.
