2,000-year-old ceramic factory found in Norway

(ORDO NEWS) — 2000 years ago, people made pottery in this factory.

The journal Science Norway has published an article that talks about the discovery of a ceramic factory on the island of Trena. The plant was built about 2000 years ago.

On the island of Trena found a ceramic factory. 2000 years ago, people made pottery in this factory. It is noteworthy that the island is located far from the Norwegian coast, and there is no clay for making pottery.

Probably, people had to travel specifically to the mainland to bring clay. It seems strange to archaeologists that such a large-scale production of ceramic dishes was organized in a place that is completely unsuitable for this.

“We found a structure that was clearly affected by heat. It is insulated from the bottom and lined with shells.

There is a lot of baked clay inside,” the archaeologists say, “we think that this cave was used to produce a lot of pottery.”

The last major excavations on the island of Trena were in the thirties of the last century.

Then the researchers found a large number of remains of pottery.
