Abstract :
Traces the production and use of brick in the county from its beginnings in the Roman period to the early decades of the 18th c. when it had been well and truly adopted as a material for all levels of building. Because of the absence of brickmaking sites the evolution of the craft is charted by examining dated buildings. Reference is made to the building accounts of Kirby Muxloe castle. There are few documentary sources for brickmaking in Leicestershire before 1710, but those which have been discovered are included in appendices. ;
