poterie

Tesson troué. On en trouve beaucoup et leur usage n'est pas certain. Lié aux salines p. ex. celles du dallol Fogha?

Vous trouverez ici quelques exemples du genre de matériel que l’on retrouve sur le terrain. Les beaux exemplaires que vous voyez ici sont tous issus de notre mission de 2011.

Folded strip et incision

Pour chaque tesson (et ses centaines de collègues non figurés ici), nous avons pris un point GPS et dressé une description de l’endroit où nous l’avons trouvé et quel autre genre de céramique y fut observée.

Folded strip sur un petit bol

Le but étant d’établir un croquis de carte pour voir si il se dessine sur l’espace de différentes distributions dans la popularité des diverses formes et décors.

Folded strip très serrée (‘la Sénégalaise’) et incisions

Ce n’est qu’un modeste début, qui doit guider notre travail dans les missions futures.

    Les pots troués ont-ils pu servir à la cuisson du couscous?

    c’est extraodinaire comme tessons de poterie avec des décorations magnifiques. certainement, un pan de l’histoire des peuples serauconnu grâce à l’étude de ce matériel archéologique. Mais, la question “les pots troués ont-ils pu servir à la cuisson du couscous” ne fait rire. M6 et vive à la recherche archéologique!

About this blog

This blog has been set up to chart the activities and research findings of two projects led by Anne Haour, an archaeologist from the Sainsbury Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, United Kingdom.

The first project, called Crossroads, brings together a team of archaeologists, historians and anthropologists studying the Niger Valley where it borders Niger and Bénin (West Africa). We are hoping to shed more light on the people that inhabited the area in the past 1500 years and to understand how population movements and craft techniques shaped the area's past.

The second project, called Cowries, examines the money cowrie, a shell which served as currency, ritual object and ornament across the world for millennia, and in medieval times most especially in the Maldive Islands of the Indian Ocean and the Sahelian regions of West Africa. We hope to understand how this shell was sourced and used in those two areas.

These investigations are funded by the European Research Council as part of the Starting Independent Researcher Programme (Seventh Framework Programme – FP7) and by the Leverhulme Trust as a Research Project Grant. The opinions posted here are however Anne Haour's own!
