Late Roman/Early Post-Roman Pottery Kiln Newark3D Model
One of six, exceptionaly well preserved pottery kilns, investigated by Oxford Archaeology on behalf of Urban and Civic Plc, as part of the Newark South development, Nottinghamshire. This particular kiln featured several kiln bars, which would have supported the vessels, located above the fuel source during firing. The kiln bars reportedly would have been arranged in a radial fashion, supported at the centre by a plinth, and around the edge by several niches formed in the wall of the kiln and preserved in this example. The archway represents the flu entrance with a large rake out pit to the front. Samples obtained from the kiln wall will, hopefully, securely date its use via archaeomagnetic techniques.
