Abstract:Petrographic analysis of Bronze Age pottery from Tell Hadidi on the Upper Euphrates in northern Syria was undertaken as part of a general program of analysis of pottery from the Tigris-Euphrates basin. Apart from providing a characterisation of the pottery made at this point along the Euphrates River, the results indicate differences according to periodization and vessel typology as well as distinctive approaches to raw materials based on functional constraints.
