Red Pottery Pot

Cishan Culture (ca. 6000-5600 BCE), Neolithic Era (ca. 10000- ca. 2000 BCE)

A yu is a vessel for serving grain or soup. Because the sand-tempered red ceramic provides increased heat resistance, this red yu was probably a cooking vessel. The Cishan culture is named after the village of Cishan, in Wu’an county, Hebei province, where the first finds of this type were made in 1972. It dates to the Northern China Middle Neolithic, 6000-5600 BC.
