Typology Class 1 Class 2 Cam 262
Description There are a large number of jars of our class 1 and 2 in TF1 from the important Basel Gasfabrik assemblage (Major 1940, Furger-Gunti and Berger 1980). These vessels are particularly important for our understanding of the early wide distribution of the ware. The generally later Basel Münsterhugel site (Furger-Gunti 1979) has yielded a few examples of jars similar in form to class 1 and C262.
