A Normandy cooking pot

Found by Lady Aileen Fox in a pit behind South Street, this vessel was imported from Normandy in the early 12th century. Contrasting with the contemporary hand-made wares made in South-West England, the vessel was thrown on a potter's wheel with rouletted ornament on the shoulder and an upright rim.
