Paste/Temper: The paste has a clayey texture. Temper is abundant, ca. 30 percent. Rather large pieces of crushed limestone to dolomite are used as temper. Firing colors range from light tan to gray-tan on exterior and interior surfaces.
Surface Treatment: Exterior surfaces are either impressed with a paddle carved with a check pattern or a simple linear pattern. Occasionally the surface of the pottery was left plain. The size of the check grid ranges from 1.5 to 6 mm. Stamping on some sherds is smoothed over.
