Although it is well established that pottery was produced at Tongeren in the Roman period, remains thereof could never be investigated in detail. In the foregone decades several wasters and kiln structures have briefly been seen during construction works. In 2013 an area of 2 600 m2 was to be developed because of the enlargement of the VIIO Humaniora. On the northern part of the school location, at the Beukenbergweg, remains dating to the Roman period have been excavated amongst which was a potter’s workshop.
