As a part of the project of studying the origins of Uril culture in the Amur region, in September 2018, the authors carried out investigations of the technical and typological characteristics of the Ang'angxi Neolithic pottery in northeastern China by methodology of studying pottery technologies proposed by A.A. Bobrinsky. This historical and cultural approach is used for the first time for this region. The early and late types of ceramics corresponding to the middle-late stages of the culture have been identified. At both stages, local clays and silts were used; sand and shell fragments were used as additives. The article describes the vessel typology, ornamentation and methods of firing typical for every stage. At the middle-late stage, a molded zoomorphic sculpture appeared.
