POMEDOR 5th sampling campaign, Western Turkey July-August 2014

Polychrome sgraffito from Ephesos

Yona Waksman and Jacques Burlot will spend three weeks in Western Turkey working in four archaeological sites (Ephesos [OAI], Pergamon and Miletus [DAI], Sardis [Harvard University]). They expect to study, contextualize, record and sample several medieval ceramic productions and types, in collaboration with the excavations teams and especially with Joanita Vroom (Ephesos), Beate Arslan-Böhlendorf (Miletus) and Sarah Japp (Pergamon).

This sampling campaign continues previous provenance studies of medieval Western Anatolian pottery productions, and aims at completing an already rich corpus of analytical data. New aspects will be dealt with by Jacques Burlot in the framework of his PhD thesis. They concern the transmission and diffusion of ceramics production techniques, through the observation and analyses of the associations glaze/slip/body.
