Imports and “In”ports: why ceramic petrography is important to Egyptology

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The analysis of Egyptian pottery through thin section petrography is a significant tool to understanding a range of issues in Egyptian Archaeology. However, its use has remained undervalued, even though it has been available for many decades. On-site and laboratory petrography in Egypt have made its application much easier in recent years. This talk will discuss the results of such research that have shed light on Eastern Mediterranean trade over several millennia, the assimilation of non-Egyptian pottery trends in Egypt, and the specialized production of pottery beginning in the late Predynastic Period. Recent ceramic petrographic analysis has highlighted the movement of vessels throughout the Nile Valley from 3000 BC to the Medieval Period. Such information is significant to Egyptology for gaining a better understanding of technological choices, political stability, interregional connections, and the daily lives of Ancient Egyptians.
