Abstract

Among the many artifacts found in several seasons of excavation at ʿAin Gh̊azāl were items designated "white ware," collected during the first season. X-ray fluorescence analysis of these wares showed them to be made primarily of limestone, with a little quartz, rather than of plaster. The samples from ʿAin Gh̊azāl are discussed in comparison with objects from the surrounding area, in terms of composition, manufacturing technique, and decoration.
