Description

How did the Ammonite settlement at Tall Jalul interact with the surrounding Moabite community and what material cultures did they share? Analyzing pottery from this site and cross-referencing it with nearby archeological sites highlights the cultural diffusion that took place at Tall Jalul; providing a framework for understanding its historical periods. There were Two Iron Age roads found in Field B Square 2 that created a sealed locus preserving the stratigraphic sequence from contamination. Since some ceramic vessels change over time, this project analyzes the cooking pots found between these roads to clarify the web of cultural influence within its historical transitions.
