The work on the site and artifacts found significantly boost scientific research on Islamic archeology.
Rabat – Morocco’s Ministry of Culture has launched the second phase of drilling archeological excavations at “Dar El Baroud,” an ancient pottery district in Sale, not far from the capital Rabat.
The excavations have revealed “the major importance of the site in terms of history, archeology, and art,” said the ministry in a statement.
The archeological works have uncovered a complete artisanal district dedicated to the pottery dating from the 12th to the 14th century. The site includes 40 pottery ovens, several artisan workshops, and various types of ceramics.
The work on the site and artifacts found significantly boost scientific research on Islamic archeology and ceramics both in Morocco and in the wider Islamic West, according to the statement.
As a result, the ministry is working on setting up a center dedicated to the site, in order to promote Sale’s history and heritage.
