|Title:||Cultural Identity and Wine Production in Northern Jordan: A Case Study in Context||Contributor(s):||Watson, P (author)||Publication Date:||2004||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/685||Abstract:||The discovery of a significant number of rock-cut wine presses in the hilly areas east of Pella, revealed an intensive local industry that had been previously unsuspected. There are strong historical and archaeological indications that the production of wine flourished here and in other areas of northern Jordan in the Roman and Byzantine periods, but rapidly ceased in the early Islamic period. The Pella hinterland provides a valuable corpus of press types and contextual information which can be evaluated with comparative data from the wider region. It represents an important cultural expression where changing mores had significant economic repercussions.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Eighth International Conference on the History and Archaeology of Jordan (8ICHAJ), Sydney, 2001||Conference Details:||Eighth International Conference on the History and Archaeology of Jordan (8ICHAJ), Sydney, 2001||Source of Publication:||Studies in the History and Archaeology of Jordan VIII: Archaeological & Historical Perspectives on Society, Culture & Identity, p. 485-502||Publisher:||Department of Antiquities, Annam, Jordan||Place of Publication:||Amman, Jordan||Field of Research (FOR):||210105 Archaeology of Europe, the Mediterranean and the Levant||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.staff.hum.ku.dk/walmsley/Others/8ICHAJ%20web/8ichaj_1.htm
