Punctated jars with appliqued parallel clay strips placed vertically around the neck. The interior slope of the jar’s lip is characteristic of the Chucalissa area and is known as the Memphis Rim. Such globular jars may have held food items, and in many instances evidence of exposure to fire is evident along the vessel’s base. Found along the Mississippi River between Memphis and the Missouri bootheel, the vessel dates between approximately AD 1500 and 1625.
