Elmali-Karatas 5: The early bronze age pottery of Karatas; habitation deposits.


Elmali-Karatas 5: The early bronze age pottery of Karatas; habitation deposits.

Eslick, Christine.






The series presents final reports on the excavations conducted by Bryn Mawr College from 1963 to 1974 at the mound of Karatas and surrounding fields, which are in the northern part of the Elmali Plain in southwestern Turkey. This volume focuses on pottery from the habitation deposits--pottery from the tombs is covered by volume six, and miniature vessels by volume four. Eslick, who began studying the habitation pottery in 1980, begins by setting out the classification and typology. Then she focus in turn on periods from I to VI:2, describing for each the fabric and manufacture, shapes, and decoration of the pottery and presenting a catalogue of finds. Other chapters look at pits in the the main cemetery trench, mixed deposits, the regional and world context, and pottery production. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
