Iron rich red loamy soils, hamra rich in medium coastal quartz and limestone – Carmel Coast. The matrix consists of iron rich clay with silty quartz, the non-plastic components (30%) are characterized mainly by well-sorted sub-angular quartz, iron-rich opaque minerals and some chert. Petro-fabric group C2 can be identified with hamra soils. Hamra developed in seas that migrated inland and on kurkar ridges, and are abundant along the Israeli coast (Shoval 2006: 226). Hamra soils have been identified before on Wavy-band pithoi from Dor (Cohen Weinberger and Wolff 2001- family C). A possible clay source for this petro-fabric group can be found at the closest hamra deposit to Dor, Maʽagan Michael. However, the clay source could also be from the vicinity of other sites in the Northern Sharon Coast/ Southern Carmel Coast, such as Tel Zeror. Therefore, at this point, I suggest to allocate this petro-fabric group's provenance at the Carmel coast, possibly even at Dor.
