Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Anatolian - Refers to the culture and styles that developed in antiquity in the geographical area of modern Turkey.
  • bowls - Rounded, cuplike, hollow parts of objects, such as the body of a stemmed vessel or the part of a pipe in which tobacco is burned.
  • bowls - Rounded vessels that are generally wider than they are high, usually hemispherical or nearly so. A bowl may have a spreading base or foot ring and sometimes two handles or a cover. Distinguished from a cup, which is rather deep than wide.
  • cups - Open bowl-shaped vessels, used chiefly for drinking, often having one handle, but sometimes two handles or none, generally on a low foot-ring; also includes similar bowl-shaped vessels, generally without handles, resting on a stem and supported by a spreading foot. Occasionally made with a lid.
  • 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.
  • handles - Those portions of, or attachments to, objects that are designed to be grasped by the hand.
  • Middle Bronze Age - Refers to a phase of the Bronze Age distinguished from the Early and Late Bronze Age cultures by differences in metal assemblages and burial rites. It is characterized in part by metalworking techniques and tool and weapon designs of increasing sophistication, including the utilization of valve molds, cire perdue, sheet work, structural ribs, rivets, and pommels on the end of the hilts of swords.
  • sherds - Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
