Through intensive contacts with the Roman neighbours, people in Germania had also come to know and appreciate the pleasure of wine. Roman drinking customs were also adopted along with the wine. Those who could afford it entertained their guests with Roman wine buckets, ladles, sieves and drinking vessels. After the death of the noble owners, the valuable exotic vessels were sometimes even misused as urns, as here in the almost 2,000-year-old grave at Putensen.
