Food Vessel fabric is coarse and thick and sometimes has elaborate rims in comparison to Beakers, which have fine fabrics and simple rims (Gibson & Woods 1997, 158). Food Vessels generally have complex decoration, and are of a similar form to other second millennium vessels, such as Collard Urns and Accessory Vessels, suggesting they all stemmed from the same type of Neolithic vessel (Gibson & Woods 1997, 162).
The earliest Food Vessels are of the bowl form and first appear in Ireland during the Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age transition (~2400BC). It is a possibility that vessels discovered in Scotland and Ireland dated to the Early/Middle Neolithic, known as Impressed Wares, are the precursor of the Food Vessel (Gibson 2002, 95). The single-burial tradition dominate and together with the pottery the feature is cited to have strong roots in the Beaker tradition that dominates in many areas of western Europe. They may have reached Ireland via Britain from the lowland areas around the Rhine or farther north. In Ireland food vessels coincide with beakers and have been found all over. In Britain food vessels are attested around 2200BC and are most prevalent at the time Beaker pottery was being replaced by other types of ceramic, such as Cordoned Urns and Collard Urns. In Britain they have a distinct focus in the north.
