Upper Paleolithic: Yuchanyan Cave


The oldest pottery in the world is from Hunan Province, in China, at the karst cave of Yuchanyan. In sediments dated between 15,430 and 18,300 calendar years before the present (cal BP) were found sherds from at least two pots. One was partially constructed, and it was a wide mouthed jar with a pointed bottom that looks very much like the Incipient Jomon pot illustrated in the photograph and about 5,000 years younger. The Yuchanyan sherds are thick (up to 2 cm) and coarsely pasted, and decorated with cord-marks on the interior and exterior walls.

japenese pots are now supposed to be 500 years younger not 5000.

Looks like they based that on the larger number and compared it to Rice's 12,700 year old date, and rounded it up a bit. Technically they should have taken the average of the range and compared it to Rice's date which is itself from a range too I believe. Probably the error of the media person.
