When this delightful little pot was found at Vindolanda, this is what they said about it "Something a little bit special today from the Vindolanda excavations. This is a complete votive pot." "It is packed full of mud and hopefully some of the original content too. The reverse is plain. One side very much looks like an owl!"
Visible fingerprints are a natural part of the making process, and if you would like to understand why fingerprints are so special, you can read our blog on the subject here.
Approx. 100 mm tall, 80 mm diameter
This replica Roman pot has been hand-made in Northumberland by Potted History, inspired by original artefacts. It has been wood-fired to replicate a Roman firing to a temperature of between 800°C & 1000°C. This process often results in variations of the surface colour and texture. When ordering, you may not get the exact vessel photographed, and the colouring may vary slightly.
Health and Safety
This is a Museum Quality Replica made using the tools and techniques that would have been used during the Roman era. This is an unglazed pot with a porous surface. It will absorb some of the flavours during the cooking process, adding to the flavour of future dishes. However, it also means that this pot does not meet modern Health and Safety standards, so we do not advise using it for cooking. When the Romans cooked in these pots, they applied sufficient heat to the pot and contents to ensure that all bacteria were 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.
