Details 

Archaeologists found this sculptural Anglo-Saxon vessel at Selmeston, Sussex, where there was once a thriving Anglo-Saxon community. The site's name is thought to derive from the Anglo-Saxon 'Sige helm' meaning 'Victory Helmet' and the word 'tun' meaning settlement. 

Amongst the discoveries made at this fascinating site was evidence of 200 graves, making this the site one of the largest cemeteries in the South of England.

Archaeologists date the site as being used from the fifth to the seventh centuries, which would explain the large number of artefacts uncovered, including spears, daggers, swords, brooches and various pottery vessels described as being unusual in design.

The community that lived here appreciated the beauty of a well-crafted and unique design such as this vessel.

Production

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.
