Pot from the early Middle Ages

Pot from the early Middle Ages

This pot from the early medieval period is one of the few examples of material evidence of the occupation of Ca n’Oliver after the Iberian period. It is a clumsy-looking, hand-crafted container, slow baked in a reducing atmosphere (without oxygen), reminiscent of a prehistoric container and reflecting the decline in certain forms of technical knowledge with respect to previous eras. Like the tupí, the pot as a vessel in which to cook food enjoys a long tradition.
