Archaeology/Chalcolithic & Canaanite Periods

Tell el-Yahudiya ware is a distinct group of pottery named after the site of Tell el-Yahudiya in the Egyptian Nile Delta where it was first identified. The group is distinguished by its special decorative technique of depressions filled with a white substance. The earliest vessels were manufactured in the Levant, reaching Egypt along with the Canaanite population that settled in the Delta, where local imitations were soon produced. For this reason, such vessels are ssociated with the Hyksos. Tell el-Yahudiya ware consists mainly of juglets, but there are also elaborate vessels in animal, human, and plant shape.
