Description

The practice of burning their houses prior to rebuilding them has produced an object known as daub. These objects are essentially hardened bits of the mud-and-grass plaster used to cover the walls. Some of the mud would bake to a hardened, almost pottery-like form when fired, and although the grass would burn away, this organic material left clearly visible linear impressions in the hardened mud.
