Pottery in the Third Intermediate

In a recent monograph David Aston (Aston 1996: 59-78) has divided the pottery of the Third Intermediate Period in several phases (including two sub-phases). The following collection of late New Kingdom (about 1200-1069 BC) and Third Intermediate Period pottery follows in general Aston without a further division into phases. The chart should be taken with great caution as a generalised picture of Third Intermediate Period pottery; it should be noted that most types significant for a phase are not represented in the Petrie Museum. Several types are only placed here because of a general similarity to the types discussed by Aston..
