Pottery

Conjunto de cerámicas

 

 The remains of ceramic vessels are abundant in La Bastida. Pottery was regularized according to the morphological and technological point of view (shape, burning). This standardized potter’s ware is classified in eight types or forms. We can find pots to prepare food, bowls and cups for beverages; other vessels as storage. These pieces could have had a last use as funerary containers or urns.

La Bastida has provided a vast representation of full containers of all types except the form 6, from which we have only identified a few fragments. The decorated vessels are rare in the Argar. Their surfaces are smoothed or burnished, and it is solely recorded the application of hubs and small handles.
The large amount of full vessels recovered in La Bastida allows the study of the technological changes in pottery production along the Argaric period.

 

 

 

 

Furthermore, another objective of our research is to find out the function of each vessel. For this aim, there will be applied laboratory techniques to define the composition of the traces absorbed by the vessels’ walls.

La Bastida has also provided a small pottery collection from other periods, specifically from the Late Argaric Bronze Age, Roman Period, High Middle Age and coeval.
