Ancient Pottery of Transjordan.

An Introduction Utilizing Published Whole Forms-Late Neolithic through Late Islamic.

by Ralph E. Hendrix, Philip R. Drey, and J. Bjornar Storfjell .


Publisher: Andrews University Press.

Publication date: 1996.

Bibliographic info: xii + 342 pages.

Language(s): English.

Cover: Spiral.

Using examples from ancient Transjordan for showing the basics of form-based typological pottery analysis, Ancient Pottery discusses and illustrates the parts of a vessel and objectively defines basic morphological nomenclature. It details how to describe a vessel and "read" pottery drawings, and explains the differences between open and closed forms..

Perhaps its most original contribution is the "form-based paradign" for identifying particular pottery forms. An introduction to the cultural and historical context of each archaeological period in Transjordan serves as a preface to a detailed presentation of the pottery characterizing each period, including over 450 pottery examples from 55 sites representing 23 archaeological periods.
