Roman pottery production in the Walbrook valley: excavations at 20–28 Moorgate, City of London, 1998–2000
Important new evidence of London’s 2nd-century AD Roman pottery industry has been found along the western side of a tributary of the Walbrook stream. Up to eight kilns, producing Verulamium region white ware, and a probable potters’ workshop represent two phases of production. The findings indicate that much of the pottery thought to have been produced outside the settlement may come from these kilns. Pottery production went into decline in the second half of the 2nd century AD, though residual evidence was found of nearby glass working and other industries. Later Roman and medieval activity was largely truncated by modern basements.
