This paper discusses Hajji Muhammad ware in the context of the Gulf, where Ubaid-related sites were identified. It focuses on new data concerning Hajji Muhammad ware provided from a recently excavated site Bahra 1 (Kuwait). Style, morphological types and decorative motifs of Hajji Muhammad ware from Bahra 1 are discussed in extent. Pottery evidence from Bahra 1 has been employed in this paper to discuss the validity of Hajji Muhammad ware as an chronological indicator and the function of this ware among Neolithic population in the Gulf.
