The oldest piece of the Amazigh (Known as Berber) pottery was found in North Africa; it is around 13000 years old. That shows the age of the Amazigh culture in that region. The Amazigh people have always made their pottery by hand, decorated in the Amazigh symbols and characters usually to mean something in particular, a message or an expressed feeling especially if it is offered to either a family member or to the neighbouring tribe to strengthen the bonds.
