Middle period Jomon pot, possibly 3500-4500 years old. Note the fantastical rim decoration.
Jomon are the earliest known pots, dating back over 12,000 years, and found exclusively in what is now Japan. Before Jomon, no stew (per the History of the World in 100 Objects). No storing seeds for the next spring. No crashing pots into the fireplace or other civilized delights yet to come.

(note: the anglicized ‘sugee’ in this URL means ‘awesome’. I agree.)
