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‛.

Description of Plan of Casemate Wall (Area B)

There are four rooms of the casemate wall west of the temenos area which have been excavated.

Although most rooms had also vessels of the known types for »every day« use, room 1 in particular had a heap of pithoi, storage jars, and jar fragments. The pottery published here was found in a layer (ca. 30 cm) of grey ashes, which extended from room 1 to room 2. Only selected forms of the vessel rims from room 1 and 2 are published here.
