Late Neolithic–early Bronze Age BeakerYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This almost complete beaker, recovered from a site in Wiltshire, dates from the late Neolithic to the early Bronze Age in Britain. It belongs to the Beaker culture, a group of people who lived in Britain around 2800 BCE to 1800 BCE. They are so named because they left behind many distinctive beakers, some not unlike this one. It is decorated in an unusual way, but it can be assumed to be from the latter part of the period.
The decoration comprises a row of four comb impressed horizontal lines above comb impressed chevrons, themselves above a row of six horizontal comb impressed lines, a plain band, and a further row of horizontal comb impressions. The lower zone of the vessel is decorated with comb impressed chevrons. This decoration scheme is difficult to parallel.
