Footnotes

  • This jug was found when the foundations of the New Bodleian library were excavated in Oxford. These jugs are often found at the bottom of wells, where they fell while being used. For a jug of similar shape see Bernard Rackham, Medieval English Pottery (1972), pl 42-43. David Hinton, Medieval Pottery (1973), pl 9, illustrates further examples also excavated from the Bodleian site and now in the Ashmolean Museum.
