Earthenware jar found in a silo from the settlement on the site of the Autonomous University of Barcelona

This large domestic recipient is an excellent testimony to the occupation of the territory during the early Iron Age. It was found in a silo which formed part of a settlement on the site where the Autonomous University of Barcelona now stands. The decorative border and the careful treatment of the surface, with a lustre that gives the piece a polished and shiny finish, bear witness to the expertise of the people who shaped these pieces.
