Prehistoric Pottery of Taiwan

Pottery is found to be daily utensil in the Neolithic Age, for daily, sacrificial, and ceremonial use. Archaeologists classify the prehistoric cultures based on the characteristics of the pottery to infer the relations between the cultures. Some cultures paid more attention to the variation of styles, and some on the decorative functions of the pottery. The arts showed the cultural characteristics of the pottery beyond everyday use.

The pottery made during the prehistoric period in Taiwan is mainly of pottery containers, and among them, jars and alms were largely found. There are also bottles, beans, cups, bowls, plates, spoons, tzeng (steamer), and jugs unearthed. Other pottery artifacts include lids, stands, spinning wheels, bracelets, beads and dolls.

The exhibition room gives a detailed view of the types, function, patterns, and technologies of the prehistoric pottery.
