Peizermaden, mound 5

In september 2009 ADC ArcheoProjects has excavated mound nr. 5 in in the „Onlanden‟ (Peizermaden, Drenthe). Interesting is the find of several fragments of a chafing dish, that appeared to be archaeologically complete. For the first time it became clear what a 12th/13th century chafing dish looked like and how it was used. A first report by Sarah Zandboer en Nina Jaspers.

In 2012 the final archaeological report was published, which can be ordered at SPA Publishers:

A complete analysis of the chafing dish and the rest of the 13th and early 14th century handmade local pottery is included in this report, accompanied by a Deventer System catalogue and various illustations. Also the results of the food remnant analysis are incorparated.
