TT99: 'Archaeology in action' -- Pottery

Here you see a video made in late September 2000 of Amanda Dunsmore reconstructing a ceramic storage vessel. First she brushes dirt off the join she has found; then she applies glue to the sherd and fits it in place. The video ends with her trying the fit of the top of the pot onto that which she has just assembled.
