Quick Reference


Roman mortaria manufactured in a distinctive fine‐textured hard creamy white or pink fabric at kiln sites around Mancetter, Hartshill, and Nuneaton in northern Warwickshire, England, from the 2nd through to the 4th century ad. Products were extensively distributed across central, northern, and eastern England, with some reaching Wales and southern Scotland. During the early phases of the industry some of the potters stamped their name on their products, amongst them G. Attius (110–130 ad), Maurius (159–185 ad), and Similis (135–170 ad).
