Distribution Systems of Pottery (Topoi A-6-3)
The focus of the project was the determination of production sites of pottery, the ceramics’ distribution and consumption spaces in a clearly spatially limited area, part of a river valley, over time.
In general, the ceramics from the Middle Euphrates Valley can be chemically differentiated only relatively rough. However, the first results of the MGR refiring analyses are more promising as they might allow a differentiation between local production sites along the river. The amount of MGR samples therefore was largely extended. The research is still in progress.
