Thumb pot found in the Roman settlement at Thatcham

Accession Number:


This thumb pot gets its name from the decorative indents around its sides.  The area where the pot was made is now part of the New Forest which has resulted in ceramics like this being called New Forest Ware. Excavations of Roman Settlement Thatcham Newtown were undertaken throughout the 1920s and 1930s along Ermin Street, the Silchester to Cirencester road, but with no evidence of any large buildings found.
