AbstractAlthough the extensive use of lime plaster for architectural and other purposes is a characteristic hallmark of the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B (PPNB) in the southern Levant, no obvious kilns have been identified in archaeological contexts yet. In this work we present details of archaeological pit-kiln structures used to lime-plaster production found in the Kharaysin PPNB site (Jordan). Geochemical, mineralogical and petrological characterization of the associated raw materials and products, lime-plaster floor and mortars, from the same site allowed the tracing of the early production and use of lime.
