Earthenware in Southeast Asia

Earthenware in Southeast Asia | Burial Jars in the Philippines | Scoop.it
Earthenware is the most important material in Southeast Asian archaeology, yet there has been little published work aimed at understanding and dating earthenware artifacts and materials on a regional basis. This volume draws together essays from Southeast Asia's top archaeologists, and includes contributions from every country in the region.
Danya Devine's insight:

This paper was written by Wilfredo Ronquillo. The paper presents information about early pottery at several important undisturbed archeological sites in the Philippines. The pottery found suggests a unique tradition of jar burials, which date back to the Neolithic period. It also highlights the differences between the Manunggul Jar found in Manunggul Cave and the anthropomorphic burial jars found in the Ayub cave.
