The handicraft was discovered by a team of researchers led by Isabella Caneva, an archaeologist at the Italian University of Lease. Archaeologist Isabella Caneva says the pot is as old as the Middle Bronze Age. The ancient jar was found with many jugs and food fossils. Archaeologists have unearthed ancient pottery from the ancient settlement of Yumuktepe Hoyuk near the coastal city of Mers.
The Yumukepte settlement is about 7,000 years old, dating back to the Neolithic, Bronze, Iron and Roman eras. The site was discovered in 1930 by British archaeologist John Grastang. John Grastang is also the founder of the British Institute of Archeology in Ankara.
Lots of pitchers and cups were received from this site. Archaeologist Isabella Kaneva says the site may be making public or ceremonial meals or distributing food to the public..
