Research Interests

Kelly-Buccellati continues as the director of the Urkesh/Mozan excavations in Syria. In the field she is responsible for overseeing the processing and recording of all the objects and the ceramics from the excavations and completing the documentation before the most important objects are sent to the museum. She also records seals and seal impressions and supervises the recording of all the whole vessels and sherds from the excavations. As part of the research and publications of the project she is continuing to prepare a major volume on the third millennium ceramics. This volume will discuss the chronology of the excavated ceramics, with a major focus on functional analysis. Most recently, she has started a project with Giacomo Chiari of the Getty Conservation Institute on the analysis of clay inclusions.
