H. Katz, A. Faust

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Storage vessels are among the most common artifacts found at archaeological
digs. They have therefore been the subject of numerous studies, which have mainly
focused on their typology, chronology, or special type, i.e., the lmlk jar. Less attention has been directed to their functional aspect, to how they were used in daily
life. In this article, we shall discuss the distribution of large concentrations of storage vessels discovered in the Kingdom of Judah of the 8th and 7th centuries b.c.e.
in order to determine patterns that will enable us to study how the various vessels
were used and economic aspects related thereto
