Keywords:south-east Arabia, Iron Age, Pottery, petrographic analyses, NAA analysis
This article explores the results of petrographic and neutron activation analysis (NAA) of Iron Age II pottery groups from the region of Masāfī with reference to their location and use. The analysis compares vessels collected in a domestic context, vessels collected in a context of reception, and vessels deposited in a ritual area. The results are discussed in the light of the local geological background.
