Pottery Summary II

A small amount of pottery was recovered from CB-48 during the 2011 excavation season, 61 sherds. Most of the pottery found was impasto, 93.44%, with very little fine impasto, 4.92%, and only one piece of bucchero, 1.64%, found. It is interesting to note that no coarsewear pottery was found. 73.77% of the pottery was found in Locus 1 , the topsoil layer which was a clay like, brown colored soil with a heavy presence of roots. Locus 4 contained 7 sherds of pottery, 11.48%, and was an extension of the trench with a similar soil to Locus 1 but with a large slab of bedrock. A single piece of pottery was found in Locus 2 and five, 8.20%, sherds were found in the baulk trim. The small amount of pottery recovered from CB-48 does not provide conclusive information regarding the southwest Civitate B area.
