Description

Three-dimensional ceramic scans provide many advantages for research and publication. These 3-D scans can be shared with distant scholars for examination. Using special software, we can convert the 3-D color scans into 2-D computer drawings that represent the cross section of the pottery sherd, which is the standard way in which pottery sherds are presented in publication. Using the program, features that may be overlooked with the naked eye are highlighted, allowing for a more accurate analysis. My presentation will explain how ceramic analysis has aided our overall understanding of the ancient Iron Age site of Jalul, Jordan thus far.
