I think it's Roman?

Post by TheAndyA »

Picked up yesterday afternoon while out detecting, not far from some previous pottery finds.

I think these are a little more interesting than my other bits.

A base from some sort of vessel?

A fragment possibly from a collander, maybe a cheese press?

The pattern on the base is typical of fairly modern stuff.

There was another strainer posted on here a few months back but I can't remember anything else about it. :D

Thanks Ratty and Fred. ::g

I've just found this one on the PAS website, the base looks similar?

A different item with a similar interior base.

Thanks Koala. ::g

The first link was more to compare the similaities in the pattern formed on the base, they do look similar, at least to my eyes. x; The material included in the clay, wouldn't that depend on the local clay where the pot was made and what they decided to include?

Of course I could be completely wrong. ::g

They both look Roman to me. The base marks on the top one are where it was cut from the wheel with a wire. The bottom one would be a strainer. There could be Roman coins nearby. ::g

Wire marks . . . . ah yes, that makes sense! Thanks for the info. ::g

My son and I have had a couple of Roman coins nearby, but that's it for the metallic finds. I believe that there has been a group of detectorists on there in the past, I'm hoping they didn't retrieve all of the interesting bits and pieces.

The base of of the first picture definitely seems Roman. As have been told by the pottery expert at the local roman villa excavation the rings are caused by the pot being rested on a base made from a section of tree trunk prior to firing.
