A jumble of unrelated ancient pieces
This seemingly 8th Century BC pottery goat tested genuine. When the restorer soaked it in water to remove old restoration glue, it fell apart into several unrelated pieces. The jug and bowl were both of the “correct” period. These had been stuck together and four pottery feet added. The whole piece was then covered in slip to disguise the joins. All the samples taken (after removing and discarding the slip) tested ancient.
