This replica 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 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, emulating original Roman Pottery and giving each pot it's unique character.
