Romano-Saxon ware

Quick Reference


This term is used both of wheel‐made Roman pottery in coarse or colour‐coated fabrics with stamped or bossed decoration resembling that on many hand‐made Saxon vessels, and of hand‐made Saxon pottery imitating Roman forms. It is found mainly in eastern England. The former class belongs to the late 3rd and 4th centuries and is not to be confused with stamped ware of earlier periods such as London and Parisian wares.
