Medieval Ceramics from Tarsus, Southern Turkey: A New Look on the Material from the Old Gözlükule Excavations

Dr. Joanita A.C. Vroom
Prof. dr. Frans Theuws

Although the medieval ceramic corpus of the Gözlükule project was found in the 1930s, it was only published in a brief article in the 1940s. This PhD research aims to present and assess the medieval pottery assemblage recovered on the mound of Gözlükule, Tarsus with an integrated approach, combining the evidence of pottery and other research carried on the medieval eastern Mediterranean in order to understand questions of production and consumption and the socio-economic and cultural dimensions of material culture. It is part of the VIDI Research Project: Material Culture, Consumption and Social Change .
