Sunday 12 – Friday 17 July 2020
Join Hampshire Cultural Trust and Wessex Archaeology to explore how pottery has helped us better understand the impact of the Roman conquest on people’s lives. Over the course of 5 days, a new video will be released on Culture on Call.
Making a Roman Pot
Have you ever thought about the person that made the Roman pot you can see in a museum display? It is sometimes easy to forget that every object had a maker. In fact, it is their individual choices, talents and tastes have survived across the centuries.
Meet Pottery Teacher, Malcolm. With his help, we can look at the techniques that were used to make pottery in Roman times: wedging, slabbing, throwing and coiling. While he is making pottery, he shares with us his perspective on the work of his ancient counterparts.
Would you like to find out more? Look out for other instalments of ‘A Potted History’ – part of the online Festival of Archaeology, and a partnership project with Wessex Archaeology.
