Abstract:
Following the discovery of a large waster pit during an archaeological evaluation at 239-241 High Street Prestonpans AOC were commissioned to undertake an excavation in order to fully define the limits and nature of the pit. The results of the excavation showed that the pit was limited to the southern half of the proposed development area measuring approximately 19 m x 12 m. Due to safety constraints the depth of the pit was not fully ascertained but it was seen to be in excess of 1.6 m deep. The pit contained considerable quantities of 19th century stoneware and Rockingham glazed pottery as well as quantities of Kiln furniture and slag. It is likely that the waster pit was associated with the former Bellfield Pottery works which produced pottery from the 1830''s and into 20th century.
