This stunning urn decorated with oval bosses and stamps was discovered during excavations at Darlington.
The settlement that eventually grew into the city of Darlington began as an Anglo-Saxon community that sprang up on the banks of the River Skerne.
Originally named Dearthington, meaning 'the settlement of Deornoth's people', after the peoples who first came to settle there.
This elegant little urn represents the iconic style of pottery from the Saxon period with its stamped and incised decoration.
Earthenware, reduction fired.
Approx. 135mm tall, 125mm diameter
As with all our Museum Quality Replicas, we have made this pot, as the original would have been, entirely by hand from natural clay and using replicas of the types of tool that the ancient makers would have used. As each pot varies, you may not receive the vessel in the image, but you can be sure that your pot will be one of a kind due to the variations caused by the firing process.
