Interpreting Vallecitos Black-on-white ceramics

July 11, 2017


Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at 12:00 noon, free!

Pottery long-produced by Towa-speaking groups in the Jemez highlands include Vallecitos and Jemez Black-on-white and Corrugated and Plain Smudged utility ware. Such pottery may have been ultimately influenced by a variety of forms including those known to have been produced in the upper San Juan, Gallina, and eastern Rio Grande regions, and may provide clues concerning the nature of Towa origins.

C. Dean Wilson is an OAS Research Associate and former director of the OAS' Ceramic Analysis lab.

The Brown Bag talks will take place at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology at 12:00 noon on Tuesdays in the CNMA library. Seating is limited. Admission is free.
