Clay roof tiles have been used to cover roofs for centuries. In fact, archaeologists have found evidence of clay roof tiles in China dating back as far as 10,000 BC. When the Romans arrived in Britain during the first century AD, they brought the tradition of using clay roof tiles with them to cover their villas, temples and bathhouses.
Although popular with the Romans, clay roof tiles failed to inspire the English who still favoured their thatched roofs. This all changed after the Great Fire of Southwark in 1212. After the fire, King John made a proclamation, stating that buildings in London should be built with clay roof tiles, rather than thatched roofing, since they were more resistant to fire.
