Martha Jasko-Lawrence, Curator of Archaeology at Museums Sheffield, brought some fascinating examples of mediaeval Brackenfield Pottery to show the group meeting at the recent Heritage Cafe. These were all finds from the kilns which were excavated in 1972 after local farmer, Mr Prue, found some pottery sherds in his fields. The collection has moved round several museums over the past forty years and is now stored in the archives in Sheffield, so it was good to give some pieces an airing. One member of the group took part in the dig and was delighted to see the finds again after forty six years. Thanks to Stuart Band for additional photographs. "Lovely opportunity to meet local people and find out about local history" "Very interesting and friendly, pity it's only once a month"
