Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the characteristics of the ceramic finds from the surveys and excavations. Although most of the study deals with the spatial settlement pattern, it provides significance to the pottery finds that are also connected to the settlement pattern. The chapter attempts to offer a regional ceramic typology based primarily on surveys, including general remarks about the pottery of the study region in the different periods. It discusses the survey of Um Hammad ware, which is a regional group unique to the study area in the Early Bronze I (EB I). The most common type of pottery associated with advanced phases of EB I in the region of the southern Jordan valley and the desert fringes of Samaria are a highly distinctive family or group known as Um Hammad Ware, or Proto-Urban D (PUD) Ware.

Keywords: desert fringes; Early Bronze I; Jordan valley; pottery finds; Samaria; spatial settlement pattern; Um Hammad ware
