Details Head pots were widely used throughout Roman Britain. They are some of the most striking ceramic items produced during Roman rule and seem to have been a speciality of Romano-British potters. This pot are inspired by examples of female head pots found throughout the Roman empire including some very famous example found in York, some of which are believed to have be modelled on the Roman empress Julia Domna. One of the most powerful women in the ancient world.

This replica Roman pot has been hand made in Northumberland by Potted History, inspired by original artefacts. It has been wood fired in an authentic replica of a Roman Pottery Kiln at Vindolanda Museum, 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 it's unique character.
Health & Safety
As with all of our Museum quality replicas, this piece has been fired to achieve an authentic finish. Like the original it is is not glazed, as a result this pot does not meet modern health and safety standards and, although decorative, I would not recommend that this pot be used for its original purpose.
