Early Bronze Age food vessel

Narberth South, Pembrokeshire

2200 – 1700 BC

Some Early Bronze Age burials were accompanied by pots known as food vessels. In Wales, they are usually found with cremations. This example was discovered in a barrow (circular burial monument) sometime before 1923 but nothing more is known about its original context or the burial it was found with.

It is decorated with horizontal incised lines, rows of fingertip impressions and bands of diagonal incised lines. It also has a row of short incised lines around the rim.
