Research Topic: The Aegean-style IIIC Pottery from Bademgediği Tepe
Dr. Mountjoy is a Mycenaean and Minoan pottery specialist and has worked on pottery in Greece, Cyprus, Israel, Egypt, and Turkey with the aid, amongst other awards, of an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship, and, at the Albright Institute, Jerusalem, the Glassman Holland Fellowship and the Seymour Gitin Distinguished Professorship. She is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, London and a Corresponding Member of the German Archaeological Institute. Her books include Mycenaean Decorated Pottery: a Guide to Identification (1986), Mycenaean Pottery: an Introduction (1993), Regional Mycenaean Decorated Pottery (1999), and Knossos: The South House (2003). Her project at ANAMED is the preparation for publication of the 12th century BC Aegean-style pottery from the 1999–2007 excavations of R. Meriç at Bademgediği Tepe, north of Ephesos. The site is identified by Meriç as the Hittite Puranda, a city of Arzawa, which was captured by Mursili II in the late 14th century. The Aegean-style pottery comprises the largest corpus of Aegean-style IIIC pottery found in the west Anatolian coastal region, apart from that of Troy. The shapes and motifs demonstrate that Bademgediği Tepe was part of a LH IIIC east Aegean pottery koine, which spread over the central and southern area of the East Aegean-West Anatolian Interface.
