Análisis de isótopos de plomo de cerámica de las tierras altas del Negev atemperada con escoria

Naama Yahalom-Mack, Mario A. Martin, Ofir Tirosh, Yigal Erel, Israel Finkelstein

Resumen


El análisis petrográfico de la cerámica de las tierras altas del Negev de la Edad del Hierro IIA reveló que la arcilla utilizada en algunos recipientes fue templada con escoria resultante de la fundición de cobre. En este trabajo mostramos, utilizando análisis de isótopos de plomo, que la escoria era probablemente un subproducto de las operaciones de fundición contemporáneas en Feinán, Jordania. Corroboramos observaciones previas con respecto a la conexión entre asentamientos en las tierras altas del Negev y las operaciones mineras y de fundición en el Wadi Arabá. 

Palabras clave


Edad del Hierro IIA; Cerámica negevita; Templado de escoria; Tierras altas del Negev; Wadi Feinán; Timna; Análisis de isótopos de plomo
