Although there are many ceramic materials obtained from ancient period to the present, information about the production conditions and technologies of these materials is very limited. As a result of the archaeological excavations, some information about ceramic production techniques has begun to be reached, important data about the ceramic workshops and pottery kiln structures used in the kiln have been obtained. However, the information reached to the present day belongs to the deficient or damaged pottery kiln. A completely durable pottery kiln has not yet been found. The kilns uncovered are quite simple and they are all different.
In this study; for the purpose of evaluating the production and pottery kiln structures together; General information about the ancient pottery kiln structures is provided. In the application section, the pottery kiln was built in accordance with the structure of the Roman kiln and the firing trials were done. With this work, the information that will be obtained in terms of both archaeological and ceramic production is thought to be helpful in subsequent studies.
