The Survey of Memphis IV: Kom Rabia: The New Kingdom Pottery

The Survey of Memphis IV: Kom Rabia: The New Kingdom Pottery
Janine Bourriau

  • Paperback | In Stock | £25.00

  • Paperback | Not Available | $130.00


This volume is a study of ceramic change in a stratified settlement at Kom Rabia, Memphis, during the New Kingdom. Ceramic chronology of this period has traditionally relied on pottery associated with dated individuals, usually from burials. In contrast, this study presents quantified evidence from a random sample taken from all contexts. A corpus has been made up for each level or phase. Appendices show the distribution of pottery within single contexts and of types within the sequence. Dating, fabric, surface treatments and shape are described in detail and there is a critical appraisal of the methodology used.
