A good exhibition of such pottery can be seen at the Musee des Beaux Arts, Brussels. Fine pottery of the Near Eastern Bronze Age was developed during the earliest of civilisations which flourished in the barren Bible lands. The peoples of the Early Bronze Age who built the first cities produced pottery, which was beautifully and simply crafted.
