Bet-Yerah Ware

Bet Yerah Ware, also known as Kh. Kerak Ware. This ceramic family consists of a variety of bowls, kraters, jars and stands beautifully burnished in red and black, as well as of unburnished cooking ware and portable hearths, all made in a style and technique clearly alien to the local traditions. This ware has been linked to groups of Early Transcaucasian migrants who emerged in the Kura-Araxes region and spread to south-eastern Anatolia and the Levant during the third millennium BCE, producing distinctive pottery known in Turkey and Syria as Karaz Ware or Red-Black Burnished Ware.
