In areas where fired ceramics are regularly made and used, like Afghanistan, ceramic styles are regularly used by archaeologists to date sites, ascribe function and use, and assess the technological level of the ancient occupants. Pottery is so common an artifact in ancient sites that understanding the ceramics of a site, a region, a culture, has become a key specialty amongst archaeologists. Pottery is ubiquitous in Sistan beginning in the Bronze Age and for every subsequent period. The chronological ceramic sequence in Afghan Sistan had not been established prior to our work due to the brevity of previous missions. We can only begin to create such a sequence, some features of which are shared here. More analysis by other scholars comparing our finds to other sites in Iranian Sistan and further afield will be necessary to fit our ceramic sequence into the bigger picture.
