Suburban Survey/Ceramic Studies: August 14-18, 2005

This week, all the pottery (ca. 50 boxes full) collected during the past three weeks of surveying Tepe Düzen was processed by Hannelore Vanhaverbeke, Lies Vercauteren, and Kim Quintelier. They distinguished and described a large number of fabrics, most of which are not represented at Sagalassos. For each fabric, all pieces were counted and weighted, and all diagnostic items (rims, bases, handles, decorated body sherds) were separated. Most of these are being drawn and photographed now. Next week all diagnostic pieces will be examined for dating purposes. Already it is apparent that the majority of the finds is of Early Iron Age date (ca. 800-400 B.C.), which confirms the large site at Tepe Düzen as the first site of Sagalassos
