About the Book
The Bickley Book celebrates 30 years of the Bickley Ceramics Project. The project built and fired numerous wood-fired pottery kilns in Somerset, exploring the reconstruction of historic ceramic technology - the longest running research project of its kind. The annual two-week event also became a lively meeting place for potters, archaeologists and people who enjoyed the farm and its woodland. This book is a celebration, outlining various aspects from the farm itself and its archaeology to individual kilns and above the people who have taken part.
