Description

Do the different paint designs applied to ceramic vessels in antiquity have any relationship to the type of vessel or its time period? The purpose of this project is to understand the characteristics of painted designs specific to each historical period at Tall Jalul, Jordan in order to draw inferences about trade, wealth, and historical period. Painted ceramic sherds from Field B were documented, recorded, categorized by time period, and compared with similar sherds from nearby sites. The results were compiled and analyzed to showcase the styles that are most common for each type of ceramic vessel and time period.
