We've had a wonderful ceramic reconstruction project in our workrooms recently - a very large Roman vessel which was excavated almost intact from a site in the village of Navenby, just South of Lincoln. We attracted quite an audience while we were working on the pot - no-one could quite believe what fantastic condition it was in, considering its age! We were commissioned to do the work by Navenby Archaeology Group (NAG). Leah used to be a member of the group a few years ago (after many years of watching Time Team in her teens!), and we have joined them on a number of projects as WHConservation, such as a Roman-themed activity day in 2014 and a talk on ceramics repair last year. It's always such a pleasure to work with the NAG members, who are always so welcoming and enthusiastic about their archaeological heritage.

 

Here are a few photographs of our work with the group, and on the pot. You can read more on the Past Projects page of our Portfolio.
