It is announced that the relics is the cornerstone of the Neolithic culture in korean peninsula. The pottery is regarded as a bowl featured by flat bottom and erected mouth. The marks made by burnt leaves are looked as if the decorative marks. No similar pottery has been found in the mainland Korea or any other place.
