Roman Pottery Workshop with Graham Taylor; the finished results!
Thanks to the Fabric of Place project, SWAAG members were lucky enough to bag a free Roman Pottery workshop led by the very talented Graham Taylor. Participants tried a variety of processes including making decorated tiles and lamps.
Now everything has been into the kiln and out of the kiln. What an amazing assemblage! Proud makers can collect their work at the next SWAAG meeting, 7pm on September 11th at The Buck Hotel in Reeth. See you there!

The steelyard weight unearthed in the 2017 dig suggested trading, while the collared hopper quern suggested a link to the Roman military, perhaps the fort at Catterick. This year we have found 16 further quern pieces. What does it mean?
