“Byzantine to Modern Pottery in the Aegean” (the English version of the publication) is the first general introduction and field guide for medieval and post-medieval pottery of this geographical area, an understudied but highly important component of Mediterranean archaeology. This book constitutes a ground-breaking reference work presenting a comprehensive overview of the most important Post-Classical ceramic types found in museums and during archaeological fieldwork throughout the Aegean, dated from the Early Byzantine through the Early Modern periods (ca. 7th and the 20th century).
This field guide includes descriptions of ca. 80 wares with key bibliographic references for each period, along with an updated discussion of chronological problems and a glossary of technical terms. By translating this publication into Turkish, Koç University Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) hopes to make this pioneering book more accessible to archaeologists, fieldworkers, scholars, and students in Turkey as well as to the general public interested in the history of the eastern Mediterranean during Byzantine and Ottoman times.
