Mysterious "pierced pottery" among the finds at Bridge Farm

Archaeological excavations at the Romano-British settlement at Bridge Farm, near Barcombe Mills, England have given experts much to ponder, including evidence of a large post-built building, coins and late Roman pottery with pierced bases.

The pierced pottery is especially of interest with suggestions ranging from vented pot lids to incense burners. Also found at the site was evidence of metal working.

The site is scheduled to be backfilled at the end of the season to protect it from the elements.
