Details
This elegant type of pottery drinking cup was popular in Roman Britain during the 3rd and 4th centuries. It was probably used as a wine cup, with the surface texture created by applying wet slip to the surface of the cup with the palm of your hand.     

Made primarily in the Nene Valley around present-day Peterborough, these pots were distributed widely throughout the province of Britannia and are found extensively on Hadrian's Wall. As with the original, this pot has been thrown on a potter's wheel.

Production

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 between 800 & 1000 Centigrade to emulate the same techniques the original potters would have employed nearly two thousand years ago. This process often results in surface colour and texture variations, as is common with the original Roman pottery and gives each piece its unique character.

 Materials

Terracotta clay, fired under reduction conditions

Dimensions

Approx. 140 mm tall, 100 mm diameter

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 us, 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 food storage with.  When the Romans cooked in ceramic pots they would rely on applying sufficient heat to the pot and 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.
