The black slip-coated pottery products fired by the Hulushan pottery kilns during this period were not only popular in northern Fujian, but also widely distributed in neighboring southern Zhejiang and northeastern Jiangxi. They are even found in the Maqiao Culture in the Lake Tai area, which is further away in terms of space. It shows that, from the perspective of archaeological culture, northern Fujian exerted a strong influence on the surrounding regions during this period under the support of advanced pottery-making technology.
