Grooved Ware Pottery, Late Neolithic, Boscombe Down, Amesbury

This kind of pottery is called Grooved Ware and usually has grooved line decoration on its surface. It is made in the Later Neolithic (3000-2400 BC) and tends to be associated with ceremonial monuments such as henges or timber circles. This particular sherd came from one of the deep pits that formed part of the pit/timber circle at Boscombe.
