Excavations at Jawa 1972-1986: Stratigraphy, Pottery, and Other Finds


"This is a concise, factual and well-illustrated report of the excavations at Jawa, a fortified settlement lying on the eastern slopes of Jebel Druze in Eastern Jordan. Its two periods of occupation are covered--the first from the fourth millenium BC when the main fortifications and the water systems were constructed, and the second in the Middle Bronze Age when a station or outpost was built on the summit within the earlier walls. This volume provides the stratigraphic record of the material remains from both occupations and places them in context. Analysis of the occupation sequence is lucidly presented, there are clear illustrations of the pottery typology, and innovative approaches to comparative analysis are included."
