Additional Kilns of the Roman Thameside Ceramic Zone: Excavations at the land of the former Mardyke Estate, Rainham, London Borough of Havering. LAMAS Lecture
Eniko Hudak, Pre-Construct Archaeology Ltd
Excavations on the land of the former Mardyke Estate by Pre-Construct Archaeology Ltd in 2013 uncovered three Roman pottery kilns, which were producing local sand- and shell-tempered wares dated to the second quarter of the second century AD. This talk will present the kilns and the pottery produced on site and will consider the kilns together with those of the neighbouring site to the west of the River Beam in their wider context as part of the Thames Estuary or Thameside ceramic production zone.
