Now that the excitement has subsided, and sober sense has prevailed, and the pieces have been replaced, and the authorities notified . . . I shall return to dolmen-hunting.
Here’s what I found:
Here is the neck of the amphora, with the handle stump protruding at the bottom. It is lighter and thinner than the handle-stump below.
This is the stump of the handle, at the neck of the pot or urn.
This is the amphora handle, or arm.
This has now been identified as a tegula or roof-tile. Intact it could weigh 7 kg.
View from above – again it should read: tegula
This will eventually be given a more accurate name than pot.
. . . and this will one day be identified.
