Roman Eating Bowl from Canvey Point

Tidal Roman Site

By Janet Penn

I found this Roman bowl for sale on ebay and have been given permission to reproduce it here.
If you wish to take a look you can see it on ebay here

" This Roman bowl was dug from the mud on Canvey Point in the 1980's.
Please note that the bowl is heavily restored.
Still a piece of English/Roman history with great provenance."

I feel uneasy about the sale of Canvey's historical artifacts. Nevertheless, its an impressive piece; in its completeness (my personal discoveries/collection only contain unrelated sherds). Thought I'd mention that images of Canvey's Roman pottery at Southend Museum can be seen via this link
