‘The Pottery Industry of the Lower Ouse Valley’ by Adam Sutton
Excavations on the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Road Improvement Scheme (A14C2H) in Cambridgeshire have uncovered some of the most extensive evidence for Roman pottery production to have been found in recent years. This includes more than 40 early Roman pottery kilns and ancillary structures linked to a single industry, newly defined as the ‘Lower Ouse Valley’ industry. This talk will introduce the audience to this industry and show how it fits in the wider context of pottery production in Roman Cambridgeshire.
Adam Sutton is an Iron Age and Roman pottery specialist for Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) and based in Northampton. His work involves identifying, dating, assessing, analysing, and interpreting pottery recovered from excavations.
