A vessel thrown on a potter’s wheel with a profiled, conical neck, of light grey colour, comes from the late Roman imperial period, i.e. 3rd–4th century AD. It was discovered at the multicultural site no. 1 in Witów. The excavation research in this area over the years 1961–1963 was coordinated by Józef Marciniak, PhD, and then, in the 70s, it was continued by Jacek Rydzewski, PhD. At that time, traces of the settlement of Neolithic communities, Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age communities, referred to as the Lusatian culture, as well as settlements from the Roman period, i.e. the Przeworsk culture, were found. The presented utensil comes from this very last period, when it was no longer hand-made, but thrown on a potter’s wheel – a tool which does not differ much from the one used by present day folk artists.
