Pottery Summary

Pottery Summary

In spite of the relatively small area of excavation, CA36 produced a significant amount of both fine and coarse pottery.  All pottery which were made finds and many fragments not recorded as finds were drawn on the overall grid plan for the area of excavation.  Material was recovered exclusively in the area of CA36 which had the medium brown soil.  No pottery was found in the yellowish-brown soil.

Two full profiles of coarseware coil made vessels were recovered from the lowest parts of the medium brown soil.  One has a slightly everted rim while the other illustrates a rounded straight rim.  Both bodies are semi-globular, with one being slightly more so.

Roughly 70% of the pottery sherds from CA36 were fragments of coarseware.


Impasto sherds totaled about 10% of pottery recovered in CA36.

No impasto handles were found


Orangeware and Redware totaled about 15% of the pottery recovered from CA-36


Bucchero sherds totaled roughly 5% of the pottery from CA-36.

No bucchero bases were recovered.
