Finds processing and pot washing

Today we began processing the pottery and bone finds that have come from the trenches. We began learning how to clean and dry the pottery with water and light brushes. It’s amazing to see what comes out under all the dirt! We learned about the basic categories of pottery such as amphora, Terra Sigillata (“Samian ware”), Black Burnished ware, grey wares, mortaria and many others.
