  • Alex Peterson
This chapter provides an overview of the methods, objectives, and preliminary results of analysis on the Middile Islamic ceramics from the northwest quarter of Jerash, excavated as part of the Danish-German Northwest Quarter Project. By using a contextual approach to the ceramic repertoire, both the settlement history and the urban lifestyle of a newly discovered Middle Islamic settlement can be better understood. Research of the pottery, structures, and other material finds from the Middile Islamic hamlet in the northwest quarter has demonstrated that a substancial building complex, with international connections and higher socioeconomic conditions, existed over at least several generations. As such, Jerash now represents an important new and previously unkown node of Middile Islamic activity in northern Jordan.
