Ever since its first discovery at Megiddo in the 1930s, Black Wheelmade ware has sparked the interest of researchers, especially regarding its origin. Most of the research so far has focused on northern Palestine. Lebanon has occasionally been mentioned as a possible region of manufacture, but so far without providing any detailed evidence. In this article, we discuss the occurrence of Black Wheelmade ware in Lebanon and provide the results of the first petrographic and geochemical data from this region.
