During the Late Bronze Age, Tell Kazel was in the center of a small kingdom on the Syrian coast, and at the borders of the Egyptian, Mittanian and Hittite empires. The city-state had relations with the other coastal states, such as Ugarit, Byblos and Tyre. In addition, it was on the trade route of the eastern Mediterranean, with which Cyprus and Mycenae also participated.
The pottery analyses reflect this situation: a) by the local pottery which is relevant to the Syro-Palestinian tradition, b) it also includes an abundant repertoire of imported pottery from the West. The last period, dated to ca. 1180 BC, which is the best represented on the site, is the richest in pottery production. It is a testimony to the important changes taking place in the Mediterranean basin.
The first part of this publication presents a corpus of 500 vases, mainly locally made and classified according to morphological types with indications to their chronological evolution during the three and a half centuries in the present study.
The second part of the publication is an inventory of the Cypriot imports to the site.
