“Pot of Namyang Type” unearthed

Pyongyang, September 25 (KCNA) — The work to find out remains of a large village site dating back to the period of ancient Korea is going on at Namyang-ri, Tokchon, South Phyongan Province, Korea.

A pot of a new type has been unearthed. Scientists decided to call it “Pot of Namyang Type” which is considered to be 3,500 years old.
It is like a gourd with upper and lower parts cut. The outline of its body is oval and the wall and bottom are not distinctive. Protuberant handles are symmetrically attached to its middle.
It, made of such soft soil as mud, is black and gray.
Triangle-type patterns are carved in its upper and middle parts. The inside of the patterns had been polished.
The discovery of the pot helps to make it clearer that Pyongyang area was a cradle and a centre of Tangun’s Korea and ancient Korea’s culture.
