Tyne and Wear HER(1445): Newcastle, Clavering Place, Roman pottery - Details
Newcastle, Clavering Place, Roman pottery
Over most of the area excavated to reveal the Carmelite Friary "there was a layer of brown clay which contained Roman pottery", and which sealed features which may have been the remains of structures. The pottery included fragments of cooking-pots, bowls, beakers, a colander, mortaria, jars, amphorae and samian ware, and was considered to date from the 2nd-3rd centuries A.D.
