Abstract

Pottery attributed to the Bronze Age phase A2/B1 is frequently recovered in special deposits in Lower Bavaria and neighboring regions. On the basis of six deposits at the site of Hascherkeller near Landshut, an interpretation is offered for the special features of this pottery that is based on the recurrent visual characteristics of the cups, bowls, and jars that comprise the majority of vessels in these assemblages. This perspective offers a way of evaluating this pottery and the deposits in which it occurs in the context of people's relationships with their social and physical environment and of the widespread changes that were taking place at the time.
