Early Islamic Pottery from Tel Roumeida-Hebron

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An accumulation of pottery from a re-used Roman cistern at Tel Hebron (Roumeida) yielded 8–9th centuries CE early Islamic pottery. Several fragments of jugs, jars and cooking pots were analyzed petrographically to determine their clay source. Most forms were locally made, yet the sampled cooking pots and storage jars were imported. These came from various regions including the southern coast and Egypt. Importing various vessel types from several regions to Hebron indicates strong connections with regional trade routes during the Abassid period.
