Pottery from the Norwegian Arcadia Survey: A Preliminary Report
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents initial impressions of the pottery finds from the Norwegian Arcadia Survey. Material from the survey dates from the Bronze Age and through the medieval period. The project provided evidence of extensive local production of pottery in the classical and Hellenistic periods, and only limited importation of Laconian, Corinthian and perhaps Argive ceramics. It provides a basic description of the local ceramics and describes the possible discovery of a workshop or potter's quarter as well as the identification of what appears to be a local Tegean amphora shape.
