Roman Find: pottery bowl

A fragment from a pottery bowl which has been glazed. Pieces of Roman glazed vessels are very rarely found, but we do have evidence that they were made at Holt, 12 miles (7 km) from Chester in the late first and early-second centuries. The colour of the glazes varied from light yellow to green and dark brown.

After looking at the site from orbit via Google Earth (and seeing little more than a grassy semicircle), I'm thrilled to discover that a new excavation is underway. I'll be visiting Chester in two weeks and am looking forward to seeing the amphitheatre in person.
