Abstract: Van As and Jacobs analysized some ceramic sherds to determine firing temperatures, the type of minerals in the clay, and how the pots were manufactured. Most of the same techniques were used in the Late Neolithic and the Halaf period. However, only the data that pertain to the Ceramic Neolithic (here termed Late Neolithic) were indexed for OCM (Outline of Cultural Materials codes)subjects (Outline of Cultural Materials). The data on the Halaf ceramics were not indexed for OCM subjects as there is a separate eHRAF collection on Halaf (M086).
