Abstract

This paper proposes a typological approach to study the structural evidence related to pottery kilns and craft areas. Starting from a systematic survey of pottery kilns attested in the Italian peninsula from the Bronze Age (2200-950 B.C.) to the Orientalizing and Archaic periods (725-500 B.C.), this research provides a reconstruction of different kilns types by putting particular emphasis on craft areas, with the main goal of identifying common features, similarities and dissimilarities among different sites. Moreover, ethno-archaeological data have been taken into account in order to provide a more complete overview of extant evidence.
