Roman kiln unearthed by builders at Norton Primary School


The remains of a Roman kiln have been discovered by builders working at a school in North Yorkshire.
The discovery was made during construction of a £1.5m extension at Norton Primary School near Malton.
North Yorkshire County Council said the kiln was the first major find in the area since the 1940s.
The kiln was found along with fragments of pottery. Archaeologists also uncovered ditches believed to be of a Romano-British date.
