This chapter surveys the pottery found in the Tomb of Karakhamun, looking at dating and classification of general characteristics of the ceramic material. It also highlights variation between areas within the tomb and assesses the functional use of different ceramics. It explains the use-life that is illustrated by the pottery corpus found in TT 223, such as the reuse of the tomb as a burial place into the Ptolemaic period and then domestic use in the Roman, Coptic, and Islamic periods.
