Abstract

The pottery workshop at Demirci, in the vicinity of Sinop, was active from the end of the 2nd or the 3rd century AD to the 6th to 7th century AD. During excavations at the site, 13 kilns were found, which mainly produced amphorae. The reconstruction of a Roman kiln by the Ceramics Studio of the Department of Fine Arts of Bilkent University was an innovative project which aimed to link the archaeological excavations with the disciplines of ceramics and museology. It was the first collaboration between a university and the General Directorate of Cultural Heritage and Museums (Ministry of Culture and Tourism). The reconstructed kiln is now on permanent display at the Archaeological Museum of Sinop.
