In this paper, we attempt a multiscalar analysis of the Maharski prekop archaeological site, connecting the landscape context, temporal dynamics, and spatial organisation with the composition of the artefact assemblage, the shapes, sizes and technological composition of the pottery, and traces of activities in the form of food residues on pottery. The pottery assemblage from Maharski prekop is characterised by a wide variation in vessels. This can be explained by the non-specialised use of

IZVLE∞EK -V ≠lanku predstavljamo rezultate ve≠nivojske analize najdi∏≠a Maharski prekop na Ljubljanskem barju. Pokrajinske kontekste, ≠asovno dinamiko najdi∏≠a in njegovo prostorsko organizacijo smo povezali s podatki o sestavi artefaktnega zbira, oblikami, velikostjo in tehnolo∏kimi zna≠ilnostmi keramike ter s podatki o sledovih aktivnosti, dokazane z ohranjenimi sledovi hrane v/na lon- ≠enini. Za kerami≠ni zbir z Maharskega prekopa je zna≠ilna velika variabilnost posod. To si lahko razlagamo kot nespecializirano uporabo lon≠enine, kjer so bile posode namenoma oblikovane za celo serijo razli≠nih funkcij, kar so podprle tako tehnolo∏ke analize lon≠arskih mas kot ∏irok razpon prepoznanih vrst ∫ivil.
