The volume bears witness to the variety of pottery survival: mostly large amounts from hundreds of contexts, often in a secondary or tertiary position, pottery from short-lived settlements or tell-settlements in use for millennia, plain or decorated pottery, handmade pottery or wheel-thrown mass products. The 16 papers of the book are classified by foreword, ware definitions, multivariate analyses, other statistics, and database systems. The presented examples are Early Medieval settlement pottery, ceramic from Troy, Turkey, pottery of the Moravian Bronze Age and of the Polish Bronze Age, Aegean pottery in the Mediterranean, ceramics from Phaistos and Ayia Triada of Middle Minoan III period, Hittite contexts from Kuşaklı and Boğazköy, Turkey, pottery from the Egyptian site of Tell el-Dabca/Avaris, cooking pottery in the Late Bronze Age Aegean, a Late Bronze Age burnt layer of the Apennine fortification walls at Roca, Italy, Latène pottery at Straubing-Bajuwarenstraße, Germany, Roman and Early Byzantine amphorae from the town of Sagalassos, Turkey, as well as Bronze Age pottery from Aegina Kolonna.
