Vessel from Fort Ancient Culture
Description: Anderson incised ceramic pot is small with a rounded base, rounded shoulders and a vertical rim. There are two strap handles attached at opposite sides of the rim. The neck is decorated with a haphazard incised two-line guilloche design. Around the shoulders is a single line of circular punctates (indentations). There are additional punctates on the lip and on each of the strap handles. The pot is shell tempered. It appears that the surface was cordmarked, but the impressions were greatly smoothed. The color varies from brown to dark gray. Item was found at the Anderson Village Site in Washington Township, Warren County, Ohio. View on Ohio Memory.
