Heworth Without Pottery Kilns
Loading...

In the banks of Tang Hall Beck, Appletree farm, Heworth, three distinct sites containing large quantities of broken and incomplete tile and pottery (orange legionary ware, presumably for the fortress at York)) have been located, suggesting the proximity of a kiln. English Heritage have treated the site as one kiln, however this may be misleading, as the sites are sufficiently far apart to warrant the likelyhood of each relating to a separate distinct kiln - taking waste to three sites so far apart seems time consuming and unlikely. The pottery was dated to Hadrianic - early Antonine, 2nd century AD.
