Spot the Pot
DD members visited the store of the Dorset County Museum to see the pot in which the Nether Compton hoard was found. As can be seen it is highly decorated in an almost modern fashion.
Luckily some of the 22,500+ coins stuck to the inner surface as the majority were sold off without record, until we had them recorded with the landowners permission. The marks are clearly visible.
Some of the members inspecting the pot. They also had the chance to see other collections not normally on show to the public.
Thanks to DCM for this private show.
