Pottery Summary

V. Pottery Summary

In the 2009 season, Tesoro 56 produced a total of 1219 sherds of ceramic. The total expressed in the table below includes everything except the 61 sherds of an impasto vessel, 20090282 which was found in situ in both Locus 12 & 15. Analysis of the tables below show that impasto was by far the most common fabric. While Locus 11 is the locus with the greatest number of sherds, it should be kept in mind that Locus 11 spanned nearly the entire trench and was one of the loci which was open for the longest amount of time. Its southern half was also composed of backfill. Of the archaeologically secure loci (4 (it's backfill portion was never excavated as part of locus 4), 6, 12, & 15) 12 had the most pottery, but then 15 was only excavated for one day. Cataloged ceramic finds also include 20090165, a piece of Ionic ware, 20090273, an impasto vessel of unusual form, and 20090282, an impasto vessel found in-situ.
