An assemblage representing post-earthquake clearing was found sealed in a well at Fabrika Hill, Paphos (the Paphos-theatre site), by the excavation team from the University of Sydney.

Most of the assemblages comprised pottery that could be dated to the late 13th–early 14th century, and included a small amount of utility vessels and a large number of glazed wares, predominantly Paphos-Lemba production. Considerable amount of kiln debris identified the site as one of the Paphos-Lemba pottery workshops.

Other material culture remains included glass, stone and metal artefacts, as well as residual Roman-period pottery and stone vessels. A considerable number of faunal...

The importance of the main "Middle Byzantine Production" (MBP), which includes several 12-13th c. pottery types known as "Fine sgraffito ware", Aegean Ware" etc., is seen both through its large distribution and by its predominance in 12th-13th c. AD shipwrecks. With the help of chemical analysis, we show in this paper that it was manufactured in Chalcis (Greece), the harbour of wealthy Byzantine Thebes, and later on a Venetian hub under the name of Negroponte. These results question the impact of the Frankish conquest on production and diffusion of goods, and raise issues for future research on consumption and food...

This paper is a synthesis of investigations, based on chemical analysis, of various categories of pottery, dated back from the late Roman to the Venetian period. It includes evidences of circulation of cooking wares, which call for a better understanding of the possible influence of these imports on cooking practices.
