High quality ceramic bowl
High quality ceramic bowl.
The bowl is of a high quality Terra sigillata ceramic, made in Estremos, Portugal in imitation of Roman ceramics. It was found in association with George Calvert's settlement in Ferryland and probably belonged to somebody of an upper class standing because of its value. It is an example of some of the wealth that existed in Ferryland during its early settlement as well as possible trade routes.
