Some perspectives upon the presence of the Norico-pannonian pottery and their fabrication
in the Roman settlement from Ocna Sibiului-Fața Vacilor / La Făgădău
The salt deposits from Ocna Sibiului contributed to the birth of some Roman settlements in this area. One of these, is the settlement from Ocna Sibiului-Fața Vacilor, which belonged to the Norico-pannonian settlers. As a result of archaeological researches, some important discoveries have been made, as for instance, a pottery kiln, ornamentation and processing tools for pottery, a fragment from a traditional pot with inscription. All these discoveries prove that here used to function a workshop, which was specialised in the production of the typical pottery for Norico-pannonian communities.
