Early Medieval Pottery in Egypt (7th – 10th century AD)

Felix Arnold (DAI), Sylvie Marchand (IFAO) and Gregory Williams (Swiss Institute)

This workshop provided a brief summary of the pottery found at a particular site and its archaeological context for several sites in geographical order, to allow to make comparisons between different regions of the country. In addition, the intention was to compare different approaches in understanding the cultural transition of Egypt from Late Antiquity to the Medieval Age. The second aim of this workshop was to review our knowledge of the pottery in Early Medieval Egypt, both of local production and imports from the outside. The practical study of pottery samples from Fustat and Elephantine, helped to characterize the main pottery productions of Early Medieval Pottery in all its diversity and to question the received chronology.
