Abstract

This paper describes a project investigating the archaeological remains of a pottery workshop and the associated ceramics at Musawwarat es-Sufra, an archaeological site of the Meroitic period (c. 300 BC–350 AD) in Sudan. It outlines the trajectory of a complex research approach, integrating archaeological, ceramological, archaeometric, ethnoarchaeological and geophysical components in order to make maximum use of the unique potential of the site. By discussing the setup and the trajectory of the project and how the results – expected and unexpected – of the individual components informed subsequent steps and the progress of the overall research strategy, the authors offer a contribution to the methodology of integrated research in the field of archaeological ceramic studies.
