Summary

Some preliminary research on ceramic vessels of the Longshan culture had indicated li vessels as the most important type of cooking vessels. Vessel's categories might not exclusively indicate a vessel type. As was observed for the Tonglin site, an important site of Longshan culture at Linzi, li, guan, and pen vessels are the most abundant categories type. However, li vessels of Tonglin site have small rim diameter sizes on average, and it is necessary to collaborating use-wear analysis for defining li, guan, and pen vessel type. It is confined to the double handled guan and the 3 legged pen with use-wear marks, which indicate possible specifically used for cooking practices. Moreover, use-wear analysis performed on ceramic vessels shows that the main difference between li, guan, and pen vessels was a mix of dry or wet cooking modes.
