Roman storage jar.
Earthen ware clay reduction fired
This replica Roman pot has been hand made in Northumberland by Potted History, inspired by original artefacts. It has been wood-fired to a temperature of between 800°C & 1000°C, using 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, emulating original Roman Pottery and giving each pot its unique character.
Health & 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 of the food being stored, which does add to the flavour of future dishes. However, it does also mean that this pot does not meet modern Health and Safety standards and therefore we do not advise that it is used for storing food. When the Romans used these storage jars they would rely on applying sufficient heat to the cooking pot and its contents to ensure that all bacteria was 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.
