20 – The Furninha vase
alarmPublication date: 19 November, 2021

An example of a ceramist artist.

This very beautiful and almost complete ceramic vase, used suspended, was found in the Lower Neolithic levels of Fuminha Cave (Peniche).

This famous site was excavated by Nery Delgado, employing the stratigraphical method for the first time in an archaeological excavation in Portugal. This vase was hand molded but the clay paste was coarse and not very well prepared.
