Here is another sherd. A very fine twisted cord roulette underlies seven incised lines. The people of BLaf seem to have been very fond of combining rouletting – most often, folded strip rouletting rather than the twisted cord shown here – with incisions. This combination occurs commonly on the 640-plus sherds analysed as a pilot-study.
As the analysis of this material is now complete, it will be returned to Bénin when we next go.
