- Refers to the period and culture associated with the second age in the Three Age system developed by Christian Jürgensen Thomsen in 1836. It is characterized by the widespread use of bronze, which is an alloy of copper and tin, lead, antimony, or arsenic, in the manufacture of tools and weapons. It developed at different times in different parts of the world, from around 3,500 BCE in Greece and China to around 1,400 BCE in several areas of Europe. There was not a Bronze Age in the Americas, since the local Stone Age cultures were introduced directly to Iron Age technologies by European explorers.
- Refers to the transitional phase on the island of Cyprus from about 2500 to 2300 BCE between the end of the Chalcolithic period and the start of the Early Cypriote period, named after the site of Philia. Pottery of the period includes both late Chalcolithic and Early Cypriote wares including shapes and designs with parallels in southwestern Turkey.
- Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
- Fine clay which, when mixed with water, results in a fluid with a creamlike consistency, used in casting, glazing, decorating, and repairing ceramic wares; in its natural state, it contains sufficient flux to be used for glazing and decorating without the need of additives. For ceramic glaze with a high content of slip, use "slip glaze."
