Cooking pot

Second half of the 12th century

This large unvarnished cooking pot, is characterised by a globular bulge extended by a very short neck. The vertical lip forms a band extending to the outside; the internal surface is concave. The whole rests on a slightly convex base. Strong degreasing paste, which shows beige, reveals traces of fire around the perimeter.
