Early Bronze Age Painted Pottery Amphoriskos

Early Bronze Age Amphoriskos with line group painting, circa 3100 - 2900 BCE, found in the Holy Land. With spouted neck and small handles for hanging. Minor chipping on rim. Intact and in excellent condition. 6" high x 5" diameter. Ex: Archaeological Center, Old Jaffa. The Early Bronze Age I is marked by rural proto-urban (unwalled) cities. The EB I is continuous with the Chalcolithic, especially in the north. Houses are mostly either: apsidal, with a curve at one end; ellipsoidal, with both ends curving; or, occasionally, caves. Burial customs included: caves, most commonly; shaft tombs; charnel houses, where bodies were laid out like in a tomb; nawamis, field stone chambers which still stand in the Sinai today; and cremation. The Canaanean Blade first appeared in the EB I, a blade with a trapezoidal cross-section. Later in the Early Bronze Age I, Egypt begins interacting with the Negev, South Coast and Sinai. There were regional ceramic families. A notable site is Bab edh-Dhra, inhabited from 3,100 - 2,000 BCE.
