The Ancient Pottery of Israel and Its Neighbors from the Middle Bronze Age through the Late Bronze Age Volume 3

This volume is the third in the series The Ancient Pottery of Israel and Its Neighbors. Covering the Middle and Late Bronze Ages, it follows two volumes dealing with the Iron Age through the Hellenistic period that were published in 2015 (Vols. 1 and 2). A final volume for the Neolithic period through the Early Bronze Age (Vol. 4) is currently in preparation. Vol. 3, published in 2019 by the Israel Exploration Society, the W.F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research, the Israel Antiquities Authority and the American Schools of Oriental Research, offers a comprehensive corpus of ceramic forms and their typological development organized according to period, geographical region, and/or cultural tradition. The focus of each chapter is on the most characteristic pottery types and decorative motifs selected from a wide range of sites. Unique in scope, this publication presents a wide range of ceramic types accompanied by specially prepared pottery plates and colour photos illustrating over two thousand forms. A classic reference work, it will serve as an essential resource for archaeologists and other scholars and students of ancient Near Eastern studies.
