Jar

Madison Plain, Late Woodland.
Comments:
Could you cook a meal without using pots? What would you use instead? When Native people began using clay pots for cooking, serving, and storage about 2,000 years ago, it was revolutionary. Ceramic pots came about the same time as corn was introduced and people began farming and staying longer in villages. The pieces of this grit-tempered jar were found in 1930 by Museum curator Arthur Kannenberg near Omro, WI, and he reconstructed what it looked like. You can still see the cord-wrapped paddle impressions on the exterior.
