Full Description

In the winter of 1959-60, the Museum learnt that a kiln had been discovered a few years earlier on the nursery gardens known as Strowgler's Ground. Inquiries were made and a small quantity of pottery which had been gathered up at the time of the discovery was acquired for the Museum. The remains are quite certain evidence of a kiln, and nearly all the sherds are potter's waste. Most of the remains are of mortaria.<1>
