Paper published on Burna

Posted on

This week, we saw the first article dealing with the archaeological project at Tel Burna see light. The article was published in The Leiden Journal of Pottery Studies, Volume 25, by Joe Uziel, David Ben-Shlomo, David Ilan, Itzhaq Shai and Aren Maeir. It discusses the way in which pottery was made at three different sites: Tel Nagila, Tell es-Safi and Tel Burna. In short, we visually examined the Middle Bronze Age pottery from the sites, and using petrography, and found that their seems to be a general cultural tradition in the ways in which pots were formed, yet not in the clay recipes, which vary from site to site.

We hope that this is one of many articles that will appear in both scientific journals and more widely read forums!

    Does the difference in clay recipes have significance?

      Well, it may reflect different workshops that used different clay recipes. but what is interesting is that even if this is the case, they all used the same technique once the clay was collected to form the vessel.
