Abstract:
Excavations revealed that after the foreshore had been consolidated behind an artificial embankment in the thirteenth century, a limeburning industry was established which flourished during the fourteenth century. After the end of the medieval period the land was divided into a set of parallel plots; buildings were constructed on top of landfill beside the Swirle during the seventeenth century, and later across the whole site. The context of this site on the Newcastle waterfront is considered, the technology of the kilns is reviewed and compared with other medieval examples. The sources of raw material were not local, and it is suggested that the limeburning industry was linked to the coal trade. There is an `Introduction' by Colm O'Brien (151--3), followed by `Excavations at the Swirle' by Nick Taverner & Alan Williams (153--73), `The building history' by Grace McCombie (173--8), `The pottery' by Margaret Ellison (178--205), thence `Roofing materials' Margaret Ellison (205--6), `Clay tobacco pipes' by Margaret Ellison (206--11), `Glass' by Margaret Ellison (211--12), `The leather' by Mick MacElvaney (213--14), `Metalwork' by Alan Williams (214), and a `Discussion' by Colm O'Brien & Alan Williams (216--26). There are two appendices, a `Report on lithological samples' by Andrew Newman (226--31) and `Cartographic and documentary sources for building history' (231).
