More of Pot 'A'?

These cordmarked fragments may be sections of the bowl of the pot known as Pot 'A', described in an earlier post below. These and several smaller cordmarked potsherds were collected from the same units as the neck and rimsherds. If they are from the same pot, they collectively represent another large section of a pot, despite the context in which they were found - mostly within the plow zone. There is, of course, the chance that more of the pot remains in the units to the west.

The fragment below, while similar to those above, was found a few meters to the west. It still may represent a section of the same pot, but more likely represents another pot that was similarly produced. This was found adjacent to a large rim and shoulder section, but its thickness and temper composition suggest that the two sections are from different pots.
