A 14th-century pottery site in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey: excavations at 70-76 Eden Street

1999

Abstract

Kingston is one of three recognised sources of Surrey whiteware pottery, used in London and the lower Thames valley from the 13th century onwards. Four 14th-century kilns were excavated and a substantial quantity of whiteware waster material, including many intact vessels, was retrieved from kiln interiors, stoking pits and waster pits. This assemblage makes an important contribution to the variety of forms known to have been produced in Kingston-type ware; to the dating of some previously known forms – archaeomagnetic dates suggest many forms were in common use by 1300; and to our understanding of the development of kiln technology.
