Production

This replica Roman pot has been hand-made in Northumberland by Potted History, inspired by original artefacts. It has been fired to a temperature of between 800°C & 1000°C, using the same techniques the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture. When ordering, you may not get the exact cup photographed, and the colouring and design may vary slightly. 

Health and Safety

This is a Museum Quality Replica made using the tools and techniques that would have been used during the Roman era. As this is an unglazed pot with a porous surface, it will absorb some of the flavours during the cooking process, adding to the flavour of future dishes. However, it also means that this pot does not meet modern Health and Safety standards, and therefore we do not advise that it is used for cooking with or storing food. When the Romans cooked in these pots, they would rely on applying sufficient heat to the pot and contents to ensure that all bacteria were killed. Heating to over 70°C for at least 10 minutes would have killed most disease-causing bacteria, and temperatures of 100°C would do even more.
