Description

Tall Jalul is the largest Iron Age Tall on the Madaba Plains in Jordan, and collecting archeological data from this site provides insight into the Iron Age cultures that lived there. During the process of excavation, two approach ramps were uncovered on the eastern slope of the Tall leading up to the city gate. A date for these two ramps can be determined by a careful examination and analysis of the pottery that was found in Field B squares containing them. This poster presents the results of a detailed analysis of the ceramic corpus associated with the construction of the two Iron Age ramps. The diagnostic sherds discovered during the excavation of the two ramps were categorized by shape, color, particles, surface treatment and form to determine relative dates.
