The newsletter pottery discussion was bumped to the next issue, due out in early January, so in the mean time, I'll be posting some bits of pottery information here from time to time. First up is an interesting potsherd from the transitional area of a grit-tempered pot, between the neck and shoulder. The body of the pot, beginning at the shoulder, is cordmarked, while the neck is smooth, with two parallel tracks of impressions known as punctates running diagonally from the shoulder presumably to the rim decoration. Rims have yet to be identified for this particular pot.
