Highgate Wood form group: Necked jars

The commonest Highgate form and a staple of the industry. The principal division is between:

  • 2.1, 2.2: jars with little or no division between the neck and shoulder
  • 3.1-3.3: jars where the end of the neck is marked by a simple groove and cordon
  • 4.1-4.4: jars with a broad zone at the shoulder demarcated by cordons above and below, often marked with a band of burnished decoration

Unassignable rim sherds are classed here as type 5R.
