Beaker pottery, Luce Sands

Luce Sands
Fragments or sherds of Beaker pottery collected from the sand dunes at Luce Sands.  The pottery has been decorated by pressing twisted cord into the clay.  These pieces were found in the 1930s by Rev Anderson of Castle Kennedy. Beakers are well-made, thin-walled pots decorated with a distinctive impressed design.  They were introduced from continental Europe around 2300 BC.  Beakers are often found with burials.
