Description

Majiayao storage vessels are an important feature on Neolithic burials in Northwest China. An increase in the number of vessels between the Banshan and Machang phases of the Majiayao culture, demonstrate a change in the value and production processes used to manufacture these vessels. We use experimental archaeology and radiography in order to examine changes in their mode of production.
