Industry, Pottery Kiln and Probable Settlement
Bourne is the possible location of a Roman settlement, as identified from finds clustering in the southern part of the modern town, including a coin hoard, pieces of a tessellated pavement, pottery kilns and ‘wasters’ with local wares ranging from candlesticks to dishes, dating from the early-3rd to the 4th centuries.
