Details

The data are based on a study by E. K. Nielsen (1983) of Neolithic Pottery of 135 complete pots. The measurements are taken at landmarks identified along the profile of each pot (see Madsen, 1988 Figure 5). The data were reanalyzed by Madsen (1988). Baxter (1994) reanalyzed the data using several different methods. The data were scanned from Table 1 in Madsen (1988, p. 18) which included only 118 pots.
