Abstract :
The author maintains that G. Lehmann’s thesis on Late Iron Age pottery in Syro-Phoenicia is a crucial step in advancing modern standards in this field of archaeology. The chronological framework of Lehmann’s ceramic corpus is firmly based on, and integrated with, a fully documented and sound stratigraphy. In many ways, this work ought to be used as a basic handbook in future researches, owing to its methodological clarity in both analysis and synthesis, and comprehensive cross-references. Lehmann himself has offered a historical hypothesis in regard to “trends in the Local Pottery Development”. For his own part, the author raises some problems of archaeological periodization and suggests also various perspectives on research into ceramics.
