Pottery seriation dating at Troia in the Middle and Late Bronze age based on the Cincinnati classification system
Bernhard Weninger Studia Troica 18 (2009): 135-162.
In this paper a stratigraphically-referenced database capable of precise and accurate dating of pottery assemblages from the late Bronze age (lBa) at Troia (Periods VIVII) is presented. the database is constructed from information provided in the excavation reports of Carl f. Blegen, Cedric G. Boulter, John l. Caskey, and Marion Rawson (Blegen et al. 1953; 1958). The paper is focussed on quantifying the dating accuracy and precision that can be achieved with the new pottery database, when statistical seriation procedures (Correspondence analysis) are applied.
