Crockery-stories: Making pots in the Romans way

Workshop: As on a real archaeological excavation, you handle original 2000 years old sherds and ask the questions: What did the whole vessel look like? How did the Romans use it? You find out how Roman dishes were made on the potter's wheel, put together broken beakers and pots, and model our own bowl of clay.
