Whitehall lies in the Upper Nene Valley, so Lower Nene Valley pots were traded relatively locally.

A Fineware Flagon

A Nene Valley colour-coated flagon or jug used in the bath house. It had been deliberately broken and left on deposition, possibly as a votive offering during reconstruction of the east end of the bath house range. The form was manufactured during the early 4th century.
