Abstract: Lipid extracts of different types of pottery from the archaeological site Sagalassos (southwest Turkey) were investigated using several analytical techniques. The usefulness of lipid analysis in the functional analysis of a broad spectrum of pottery from one archaeological site was evaluated. The results establish indeed a relationship between vessel use and form. Based on the analyses a determination table could be drawn relating vessel use and form and separating the different types of vessels. This research shows that lipid analysis can be a valuable contribution to classify different ceramic pots. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
