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‛.

The new area was opened ca. 50 m immediately south of the qasr el-Bālū῾.

When approaching the area one meets a flat even field with wall lines running east-west. The wall lines are constnicted of heavy basalt blocks forming a ca. 1,5 m wide wall surrounding the qasr at its south side which is relatively unprotected since it is open flat country to the south. From this wall several wall lines were visible above ground and awaited their excavation. The exacavation area covers a field of ca. 80 × 50 m. ← 235 | 236 →
