News from the Finds Room

Some of the late third- and fourth-century pots recently excavated at Rhodaus Town in Canterbury. Several at least date to the second half of the fourth century. Note the very unusual large stamp-decorated pot with face at the back of the picture. They have been described as the best assemblage of complete Roman pottery vessels to emerge from Canterbury since the 1970′s.

Most were part of burial groups and some were CT-scanned before their contents were removed. Pictures to follow.
