This object has the following keywords:
- burnishing - Making shiny or lustrous by rubbing with a tool that compacts or smooths.
- Early Bronze Age - Refers to the earliest phase of Bronze Age cultures, which developed differently in different regions, either from Chalcolithic or Neolithic technologies. It differs from the Middle and Late Bronze Age cultures primarily in metal assemblages and burial rites. It is characterized in part by the earliest experimentation with copper alloys to produce bronze, as well as the improvement of stone tools, and various other local cultural developments. Some scholars classify the Chalcolithic as the earliest phase of the Bronze Age.
- Minyan ware - Ware produced on the Greek mainland and dating from the Middle Helladic, characterized by wheelmade, angular shapes, and unornamented surfaces. The pottery was named by Schliemann after the legendary inhabitants of Orchomenus in central Greece, where he first came upon it; today it is believed unlikely that the Minyans were the original creators of Minyan ware
- rim sherds - Fragments of a ceramic or glass vessel from just below the rim.
- sherds - Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
