THE SPECIAL SERVING DISH
It is the size of a modern soup-plate. However, it is supplied with a hollow base. This find leads us to conclude that the dining table (even a low one) was superfluous. One had to merely be seated on a low stool or straight on the floor. The chamber in the base of the utensil used to be filled with live embers and so the meal was kept warm. The Lake Town people (remember the firepots) appear to have had the habit of taking long meals.
