Neolithic age Pottery 3,400-2,200 BC
A chance to own a genuine identified piece of Neolithic pottery from Bardouville, Seine Maritime, Normandy, France. Neolithic pottery is characteristically crude and rough. Inclusions in the clay, of sand, shells and flints are common, as a well to strengthen the structure of the pot. You might find finger marks, lines where decoration might have been added and even burnt remains of the last meal, when the pot may have broken, or smashed ceremonially - perhaps after the husband did not come home from hunting or farming early and his dinner ended up on the wall of the Long House.
