Feurt Incised Ceramic Rimsherd
Description: This fragment of a large, spherical Feurt Incised ceramic vessel has a broad, outward flaring rim with a flange handle and an angular, notched lip in the rim just above the handle. There is a 65 mm band of incised line-filled triangles where the flaring begins under the rim. The shell-tempered vessel is brown on the outside and dark gray on the inside. This piece is from Fort Ancient Culture. The Fort Ancient people were a late prehistoric culture living in southern Ohio between 1,100 and 450 years ago. Fort Ancient people were Ohio's original farmers, growing crops of corn, beans, and squash, and thrived in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. Villages were made up of a number of circular or rectangular houses surrounding an open plaza. The Fort Ancient people continued to build small burial mounds, but gradually shifted to burials in a cemetery area with no mounds. View on Ohio Memory.
