Pudding Pan: A Roman Shipwreck and its Cargo in Context (British Museum Research Publication)
The exhaustive research presented in this book convincingly argues that the material represents an unknown proportion of a cargo from a Roman trading ship en route from northern France to London that was deposited on the seabed between AD 175 and 195; it is not yet clear whether the deposit represents a shipwreck or a jettisoned cargo. Such a site is extremely rare throughout the Roman Empire, particularly so in northern Europe, and its discovery could play a crucial role in our understanding of Roman trade. The search for the site continues, but this publication offers the first detailed study of a seemingly predominantly samian cargo in British waters and contributes a new perspective on the organisation of trade and consumption in the Roman era.
Michael Walsh is currently a senior maritime archaeological consultant working in the commercial sector on a wide variety of maritime projects. Michael is still research active and continues the search for the Pudding Pan site.
