Ceramic Summary

Ceramic recovery in South Flank during the 1998 season is similar to that noted during the 1997 season. All material was recovered from the sealed deposit below the archaic floor level. The sherds were highly fragmentary, but showed little signs of wear.

Again this season, as in last season, the greatest quantity of material was recovered from the dark brown soil with carbon. (Loci: 32, 41, 42, 47) However, there is a smaller quantity of fine and decorated bucchero that was recovered from this stratum.

The majority of the ceramics recovered from the South Flank are utilitarian coarseware and impasto.
