Drawing of a pottery vessel found by Russian archaeologists excavating at the Kulikovo battlefield, Russia. Pottery vessels used for food storage typically have a narrow mouth unlike cooking pots with wide mouths designed for adding and removing food. Narrow mouth vessels are far less common than cooking vessels at Slavic sites and this may be the result that most food storage was done in wooden containers, woven baskets, or in leather containers.
