This object has the following keywords:
  • Cypriote - Refers to the culture of the island of Cyprus, particularly during the Bronze Age from about 2300 to 1050 BCE.
  • Neolithic - Refers to the final stage of Stone Age development of a human culture, characterized by sophisticated stone tools created by polishing or grinding, wide-spread domestication of animals and plants, settlement in permanent villages, and the appearance of pottery and weaving. Neolithic cultures first appeared during the Holocene Epoch, around 9,000 BCE, and survived in certain remote areas of the world into the 19th century. Artistic products include wooden and stone houses, religious monuments, fortifications, carvings, paintings, textiles, and pottery.
  • Red-on-white - Refers to the pottery style found in Cyprus from the Late Neolithic period beginning around 4500 BCE through the Chalcolithic period ending around 2300 BCE. The style, one of the first indigenous ones to emerge in Cyprus, went through several stages of development but is generally characterized by handmade vessels, most commonly thick walled bowls and handleless flasks, decorated with red paint.
  • sherds - Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
