Abstract This article presents the results of scientific analyses on a selection of sherds associated with two kilns from the site of Kinet H?y?k (Hatay). The kilns are dated to the eighth century BC and the end of the seventh century BC. In between these two periods, archaeological evidence suggests a period of occupation by the Neo-Assyrians. The present study assesses the impact of this occupation on the pottery industry at the site using a combined approach of thin section and neutron activation system of local wares. ?zet Bu makale Kinet H?y?k (Hatay) yerle?im alanmdaki iki ocakla baglantili seramik par?alan ?zerine yapilan bilimsel analizlerin sonu?lanni sunmaktadir.
