Pottery across the ages
Communities all over the world learned to make pots and fire them in bonfires. The methods used were very similar.
More preparation and more brushwood was necessary if a lot of pots were to be dried and fired. But it was a more efficient method than firing pots singly and losses through cracking and exploding were fewer.
Firing many pots together was also a periodic communal event, needing a team spirit to keep the fire going the whole day.
