Book: A History of Pottery and Potters in Ancient Jerusalem
Chapter: Pottery from the Byzantine Period
This chapter is concerned with pottery from the Byzantine period. In this period the clays used in the pottery production were not similar to those used during the Iron Age. It is considered that that pottery was produced in large quantities in several ‘factories’ with very efficient production systems. The chapter presents the wares of the Byzantine pottery, as well as a survey of the pottery classes and ends with a note on the date of this pottery.
