A pottery workshop focusing on these finds will be held on Saturday, September 10, at the Coldstream Museum.

Throughout the Flodden 500 project, many volunteers have taken part in excavations, uncovering a range of pottery from prehistoric to modern. Field walking has also played a major part in discovering pottery, where volunteers have carefully walked transects through recently ploughed fields, searching for any objects of interest, being meticulous in both locating and unearthing each and every one.

Richard Carlton, a specialist in pottery technology will lead the event which will include an opportunity for people, to roll up their sleeves and have a go at the potter’s wheel.

“This really is a great opportunity for people to come along and learn all about the pottery we have unearthed throughout the duration of the project,” said Alistair Bowden, part of the Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum project.
