Description

The Moabite and Ammonite Iron Age cultures the lived at Tall Jalul decorated their pottery with uniquely painted designs. This painted ware changed over time, and the styles can be used to categorize specific time periods. This poster examines the painted ware found in Fields B and G and organizes them by color, style, historical period and form, where available. Each sherd was registered, photographed, and analyzed using the Madaba Plains Project standards for ceramic analysis. The data was collected, correlated, and entered into a database. The paint designs and other surface treatments were compared with similar sherds from nearby sites. Stratified sherds were also compared with unstratified sherds to determine the dates for each. Then the sherds were organized into a timeline representing the painted ware from each historical period. The results show the variety of paint designs found at Tall Jalul within their stratigraphic context.
