The exhibition “Arrêt poteries”, which was entirely produced and designed by a student of the Master’s degree “Patrimoine et Musées” of the University of Lille (Aurélien Nicole) puts into context Roman pottery which was seized by the French custom officers in Dunkirk in 2011 and 2013. A close collaboration with scholars from the DANUBIUS Project, the research centre HALMA–UMR 8164 (CNRS, Univ. Lille, MC), the Research Centre on Antiquity of Southeastern Europe of the University of Warsaw, the Bulgarian Archaeological Association and the University of Leicester allowed the identification of these objects, as well as their origin: Bulgaria, most probably Ratiaria-Archar and/or Novae-Svichtov.

Curators of the exhibition: Patrick Talleu and Aurélien Nicole.
