The archaeological works have uncovered a complete artisanal district dedicated to the pottery dating from the 12th to the 14th century. The site includes 40 pottery ovens, several artisan workshops, and various types of ceramics.

The work on the site and artifacts found significantly boost scientific research on Islamic archaeology and ceramics both in Morocco and in the wider Islamic West, according to the statement.



As a result, the ministry is working on setting up a center dedicated to the site, in order to promote Sale’s history and heritage.
