Medieval and Premodern Haji ware cooking jar and pot excavated from the Kagami-Senninzuka and Kagami-Nishitani Sites in the Higashi-Hiroshima Campus
The southern foot of the Kagamiyama Castle Site is an important area for understanding the culture of the Saijo Basin in the Middle Ages. We report a medieval and premodern Haji ware cooking pot and jar that were excavated from the Kagami-Senninzuka and Kagami-Nishitani Sites of the Higashi-Hiroshima campus. We confirmed the presence of numerous jars with triangular or u-shaped brims under the mouth edge (Haji ware cooking jar F). Jars in which the brim opens into a socket have also been confirmed (Haji ware cooking jars B and C). Some pot bodies with brims (Haji ware cooking pots A and B), inner ear (Haji cooking jar D), leg of hoot jar and pot hanger have been confirmed as well. The wing-shaped pots of the Aki and Bingo areas are classified into Class 2 (F-A, F-B), and the Kagami Area mainly consists of F-B type pots with a rich distribution in the Saijo Basin. Changes such as the things which there is body outwardly are accepted by a thing having a long brim, and it is thought that I have width at the use time of remains. The discovery of numerous Middle Ages cooking utensils in the Saijo Basin provided useful information with regard to medieval production and distribution. In the future, we would like to investigate the remains of other relics located in the surrounding area.
