(BROWNARE & CORRUGATED WARES)
KIET SIEL GRAY
TYPE: Kiet Siel Gray
DATE: A.D. 1200 to 1300 (Oppelt 2008:21)
KEY DIFFERENCES: Abundant opaque temper. Surface is usually very rough, bumpy, deeply pitted, often coils are not completely obliterated. Scraping marks conspicous, often coarsely crazed. Rims often appear to be formed with a single very wide flattened coil. Interiors are usually bumpy and rough as well, all earlier types (except Lino Gray) are usually smoother.
COMMENTS: Similar to Lino Gray, but later in time. Compared to Lino Gray, vessels are often larger, with room ollas or jars being the most common.
