Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the entire array of Chalcolithic and Early Bronze Age I (EB I) sites on which the research is based. It includes the information on all surveys and excavations in the region, including unpublished sites that were found while this research was in progress. The chapter describes the Chalcolithic and EB I pottery references in each site description. The ceramic and lithic assemblages attest to a medium probability presence during the Chalcolithic period. The lithic assemblage attests to a low probability presence during the Chalcolithic period. The complete absence of indicative pottery from this period attests to a temporal presence at the site that might be connected to the vast fields in the vicinity. The ceramic assemblage attests to a medium-high probability presence during the EB I. The presence of the Um Hammad style suggests an occupation during the EB Ib.

Keywords: ceramic assemblage; Chalcolithic site; EB I sites; lithic assemblage; pottery references
