Description

Han River Chulmuntogi: A Study of Early Neolithic Korea by Sarah M. Nelson: Scattered throughout the Korean peninsula are about 100 known sites which contain handmade pottery decorated with parallel incised lines. First described by Japanese archaeologists in the early part of this century, the pottery was thought to resemble Central European ceramics decorated with a multiple toothed tool, and so was designated in Japanese Kushimemon Doki, a translation of Kammkeramik (comb-pattern pottery). Translated into Korean, the same characters are pronounced Chulmuntogi, and sites with such pottery are known collectively in Korea as the Chulmuntogi Munhwa, the "comb-pattern pottery culture." Although not descriptive of a majority of the pottery called Chulmun, this term will nevertheless be retained here since it has become established in Korea. It is well understood to cover a variety of other decorative techniques as well as possible comb markings on prehistory pottery in Korea.
