Peuplement protohistorique du Kech-Makran au 3e millénaire av. J.-C. : l'assemblage céramique de la période IIIc sur le site de Miri Qalat

Abstract : Since 1989, the Kech-Makran (southwestern Pakistan) has been part of a large archaeological project whose aim is the reconstruction of the ancient occupation of the region along with its paleoeconomic and paleoenvironmental context. The excavation of Miri Qalat allows us to define a long chronological and cultural sequence from the 5th millennium В. С until the Islamic period. The study of pottery production during the 3rd millennium В. С emphasizes a craft specificity based on close ties to southeastern Iran, Oman and southern Afghanistan. The ceramic assemblage of Period IIIc, before the Indus occupation of the site, shows well-established resemblances to the material of Bampur V-VI in about 2 500 ВС. This paper presents the different pottery groups of Period IIIc and their stylistic and technological correspondences with the artifacts collected in the Dasht Plain (southwestern Makran) for Period Illb. It brings to light the original features and evolution of a significant craft tradition of the mid3rd millennium ВС.
