Ancient Roman Kiln

While digging for a cistern in the gardens of the 18th-century Palazzo Corsini in Trastevere, an ancient Rome kiln, in use from the 1st through 5th centuries AD, was discovered by chance. The kiln is the only example within the city walls, and the oldest ceramic workshop for large-scale production in Rome. Fine tableware, some glazed ware and lamps were produced, based on evidence of the pieces culled from the kiln.

The kiln is flanked by a storage area filled with storage amphorae form Spain. Other finds from the area suggest that additional artisan activities took place there. #romacittàdellaceramica #romeceramiccity #terracotta #ceramics #ceramicproduction #ancientromankiln #trastevere @ Palazzo Corsini alla Lungara
