TELL RAD SHAQRAH

CHEMICAL AND MINERALOGICAL COMPOSITION AND
SOME TECHNOLOGICAL PARAMETERS OF MEDIUM-
COARSE WARE FROM TELL RAD SHAQRAH
Maigorzata Daszkiewicz, Ewa Bobryk
This paper is the next in a series of reports on the results
of a combined chemical, mineralogical and technological study of
North Mesopotamian pottery of the Early Dynastic period. The
samples derive from excavations on Tell Rad Shaqrah in
northeastern Syria.1
The assemblage of pottery samples selected for laboratory
analyses represents all kinds of fabrics from the site, as well as
examples of the different categories of wares selected by
archaeologists, such as: fine ware, medium-coarse ware, kitchen
ware, storage vessels and Metallic Ware. This paper is devoted to
a presentation of the results of laboratory analyses of ten samples of

1 In 1991-1995, Tell Rad Shaqrah was excavated by a Polish mission headed by
Prof. Piotr Bielinski.
