About Friends of Highgate Roman Kiln
The Highgate Roman Kiln
In 1968 Tony Brown, Harvey Sheldon and their team of archaeologists found a remarkably well-preserved Roman pottery kiln in the substantial Roman pottery manufacturing site in Highgate Wood.
This kiln is the only Roman pottery kiln in Greater London to have been lifted and conserved. It is now hidden from public view in storage in Bruce Castle Museum cellars. It needs to be seen and it needs tender loving care so it does not deteriorate.
FOHRK has been established to bring the Highgate kiln back to the Wood where it was made and exhibit it in a secure setting as the focus of an exciting learning programme in crafts and heritage.
The activities will include experimental archaeology, such as experiments based on Roman pottery-making in the Wood in previous years, specially designed curriculum materials,and inclusive online and face-to-face community learning opportunities.
