NJ90NW 2613 c.940 057

NJ 940 057 A small assessment in the Clayhills area revealed deposits of clay but no features of medieval date. From archaeological evidence it is clear that pottery and tiles were manufactured in Aberdeen from at least the 13th century. No actual production centre has so far been identified within the burgh, but the name 'clayhills' is recorded from at least the later 14th century.
