This jar has small beads around the neck and is decorated with red pigment and cord impressions. As regional rulers became more powerful in the Yayoi period, they demanded higher quality ceramics. Warfare also became more common, and in Western Japan ditches and other defenses were built around communities from about 300 BCE onwards. Famous examples include Yoshinogari in Saga prefecture and Asahi in Aichi prefecture. Earthenware, cord-marked. From Japan. 100-250 CE. (The British Museum, London).
