This enormous pottery jar was made by a Celtic potter in the Late Iron Age. It was found laying crushed on a sandstone hearth. The vessel was made in the Malvern Hills area without the use of a Potters Wheel. It has a lead repair in the lower part of the vessel which was made in antiquity. It is about 50 cms high and has a girth of 45cm and would have been used for storing either liquid or solid food.
