Archaeological Site

Previously I have shown Jomon pots which I think are wonderful, but here are some Jomon buildings that have been reconstructed. As part of the 2002 Wood Fire Festival at Goshogawara we were taken to the Sannai-Maruyama Iseki Historical Site. The area is still being researched and is extreemly interesting. No one seems to know exactly what the tall wooden structure was used for but the small house was obvious. Very like New Zealand Maori store houses set on tall posts to keep vermin out.

  1. I have a copy of a book on Jomon pottery that Takichi Kawai brought to NZ as gifts for potters. A very large and heavy book.
