Details The fertility of both people and agriculture were of vital importance to the Romans, whose existence relied upon a good harvests and a health population. Therefore they had a wide range of deities associated with fertility, one of whom was the goddess Ceres. She is said to have been responsible for overseeing the welfare of fertility, agriculture, grain crops and motherhood. And her effigies would have been used in a wide range of rituals, from household worship to harvest festivals, in order to gain her favour. May she bring you good luck and an abundant harvest.

This replica Roman pot has been hand made in Northumberland by Potted History, based on an original artefact. It has been fired to a temperature of between 8000 & 1000 Centigrade, to emulate the same techniques that the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture, as is common with the original Roman Pottery and giving each piece it's unique character.
