Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Throughout the Dynastic age, Egyptian pottery workshops imitated foreign ceramic shapes in local clays. An Egyptian imitation of an Early Bronze Age Levantine Combed Ware jar, found at the Upper Egyptian site of Ballas and currently held in the Petrie Museum, University College London, is discussed in the context of known imports and local copies during the Old Kingdom. The fabric, manufacture and date of the jar are discussed against the background of imported ceramics from this period.
