Ceramic data analysis

The aim of our project is to integrate and analyse open access online datasets documenting the geographical distribution of amphorae, tablewares, and their stamps and inscriptions on amphorae. We employ statistical analysis to the dataset focusing on revealing the patterns that are commonly used as proxy evidence of inter-regional trade mechanisms:

  1. chronological changes in geographical distribution
  2. chronological changes in the volume and proportions of ceramic types at sites
  3. trends in correlation between distance from place of production with ceramic.
