Full Description

Kiln XXV found in 1952 in the playing fields of Endsleigh School immediately W of Kingswode Hoe. It was excavated by members of the staff and boys. It was pear shaped, with central support, made of clay blocks, attahced to the back. The floor had vanished, but had in part been supported by long box flue tiles perhaps laid horizontally. The pottery found in the filling of the flues was late, including wasters of colour-coated beakers of f.395. No coins were found. A bronze brooch of type Cam.IV found in the filling of the stokehole is C1. Very little pottery was found outside the kiln, which probably produced mortaria (ff 498, 499) and other wares. <1>
