The Prehistory and History of Ceramic Kilns

by Prudence M. Rice

Part of the Ceramics & Civilization Series

The Prehistory and History of Ceramic Kilns Synopsis

Application of heat to clay transforms it into a ceramic, and thus the history and technical features of structures supplying that heat - kilns - are of considerable importance. The 14 chapters in this volume discuss ancient and historic kilns from the viewpoint of their excavation, their operational principles, and their contributions to an understanding of ceramic production within ancient economies.
