Highgate Wood form: HW.4.4 S-shaped jar with decorated band at shoulder

  • Form: S-shaped profile with rounded projecting rim. Decorated on the shoulder zone with groups of vertical burnished lines, separated by undecorated zones. A rare variant. In some of the latest examples the (e.g. 1295 and 1596) the diameter at the girth is only slightly greater than that at the rim, which contrasts with the shape some of the examples from earlier contexts of type 4.2, where the girth is significantly wider than the rim.
  • Fabric: HWC
  • Phase: Phases 3 and 4.
