Eastern Han
Green Glazed Pottery Pigsty - Funerary Object
绿釉陶猪圈    随葬品

This green glazed pottery pigsty dates to the Eastern Han Dynasty (25 - 220 AD). During the Han Dynasty it became very popular to create small ordinary scenes from everyday life as burial objects. They give us a limited snapshot of life at the time. This pigsty was found at a dig in Tongguan County. There is another view on the next page. There is a model of a well below. No further information is available, but it comes from the same era.
