Description

Coil or mould-made ceramics in the Intermediate Early Bronze Age IV/MBI period were not wheel-made but display thin walls. Globular cookware retained soot inside and outside. Spouted pots held some type of beverage or other food and could attest to goat-milking activities. Perforated cups may have been associated with processing dairy products. Round-bottomed pots at northern sites were manufactured in moulds, unlike flat-bottomed contemporaneous pots characteristic of southern sites.
