Pottery Analysis:

In total there were 1,624 fragments of pottery recovered from T 62 during the 2014 excavation season, many of which had high levels of preservation, despite being fragmentary. Locus 11 contained the most pottery, at 439 sherds. Of the total fragments, some diagnostic fragments were cataloged, including 20140040

20140040 , 20140074 20140074 , and 20140103 20140103 . Several of them, 20140027 20140027 , 20140064 20140064 , 20140079 20140079 and 20140089 20140089 , were weaving implements.

Multiple pieces of coilmade, ridged, and molded impasto and bucchero were found, though few were cataloged. Such typologies are indicative of the late Iron Age through late Orientalizing Period. The presence of sherds from such a wide range of dates suggests a long period of use of the Tesoro Westarea, with a strong possibility of intersecting typologies and technologies due to continual occupation. Many fragments of Medieval pottery were recovered, indicating limited Medieval activity, though not habitation, in the area.
