Ceramics from el-Bālū‛


Udo Worschech

This book is a first presentation of pottery samples from el-Bālū‛ in the northern Ard el-Kerak, the ancient Moabitis which today is Central Jordan. The forms presented here are dating from the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age down to the Persian periods of occupation of the site of el-Bālū‛. The book does not discuss the pottery in the wider context of Jordanian or Palestinian ceramics; however, the intention was to present pottery from the hitherto only sparsely published Iron Age pottery of the region. With this documentation scholars of the Archaeology of Jordan are invited to work on the ceramics excavated in the Areas A, B, C, D, E, and G of el-Bālū‛.

Brief Description of Plan of House (Area C)

Area A is located close to the western face of the castle of el-Bālū῾. The excavation Room 1 of the house installation, which has been interpreted as a court-room house showing Assyrian influence (?) has already been described (see literature below). No sherds are published from room 1.

The long-room of room 2 had a small tabun close to a possible entrance to the unexcavated court yard. From room 2 to room 3 a doorway with lintels still in situ led into room 3, which contained a few cultic type vessels and objects.
