About this title

Synopsis:

Ottoman archaeology in the last decade has progressed from the study of a "Dark Age" to the multi-faceted investigation of the history and societies of the longest-lived Muslim empire of the early modern era. Missing from this investigation, however, have been technical studies of Ottoman-period ceramics-studies that identify assemblages, define typologies, and posit chronologies for specific wares across entire regions. This volume assembles such technical studies for the region of the Ottoman Levant: Cyprus, Israel, Palestine, and Jordan. This geographical focus recognizes the cultural, historical, and economic interconnections that made the Levant a distinctive part of the Ottoman empire. These studies present previously unpublished corpora of Ottoman pottery from largely archaeological, and specifically stratified, contexts. The individual authors are leading ceramics specialists in their respective areas. Rather than merely a collection of unrelated studies, however, this volume attempts to synthesize current knowledge of Ottoman ceramics in a manner that is both technically useful to field archaeologists and theoretically suggestive to scholars of Ottoman social history.
