In an article published in the series Orientalia Lovaniensa Analecta, Henning Franzmeier wrote about the secondary function of pottery. This case study used the ceramic assemblage from a Ramesside well near Qantir-Piramesse in the Eastern Nile Delta in Egypt. The visualisation of the well was made in 2008 and you can read about it here.
