A Remarkable thing

Jen and I have been away for several days sorting out Cecil's home, deciding what to keep, what to ditch and planning how to deal with the remainder - there is a great deal. We came across a very curious thing. An old piece of pottery, a nice warm colour, with a lovely dappled surface. Initially I had visions of medieval storage jars, all neatly lined up

noticed the ridges on the inner curve, evidence of fingers shaping the spinning clay - a tactile link to our human past. If you run your fingers the right way, the tips of them fit perfectly in the shallows
then Jen spotted this

cuneiform?
