This is one theory on how Iron Age minims were made, using clay shrinkage to keep the detail which really is unbeleivable on some Iron Age minims :thumbsup:

These four are the best I got, all came up within an hour, concentrating on an area after picking up a big chunk of samian ware cup & other pottery there, it was on a building site of a new farm house & barn I was working on between Bicester & Oxford, lovely dark soft soil close to a villa & temple site, I’d never stayed late at work so much for a few weeks after finding these!
