Teffont Archaeology Project: Roman Pot
This near complete pot, dating from the 3rd-4th century AD, was recovered from the top of a heavily burnt deposit within a cist: a rectangular box made from stone slabs set into the ground. Unlike most cists, this one did not contain human remains, and we wonder whether the smashed jar, animal bones and other material represent some other form of commemorative deposit.
The cist lay just outside a large Roman building in Hill Field in Teffont, Wiltshire. Click on the annotations for more information!
