Appendix 1.6 Method of manufacture

The pottery was all handmade but with varying levels of competence. The majority of vessels were probably coil built and have been carefully finished, although the coils were not generally visible in section. All the pottery has been fired in a bonfire- or clamp-type kiln, resulting in the characteristic (reduced) dark grey-brown/black colour.
