Using examples from ancient Transjordan for showing the basics of form-based typological pottery analysis, Ancient Pottery discusses and illustrates the parts of a vessel and objectively defines basic morphological nomenclature. It details how to describe a vessel and "read" pottery drawings, and the differences between open and closed forms. Perhaps its most original contribution is the "form-based paradigm" for identifying particular pottery forms. Included is an introduction to the cultural and historical context of each archaeological period in Transjordan which serves as a preface to a detailed presentation of the pottery characterizing each period, including over 450 pottery examples from 55 sites representing 23 archaeological periods
