Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 10: Temporal Variation in Undecorated Pottery: A Tool for Chronology Building (1997)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Barbara Montgomery. Stephanie M. Whittlesey.

Chapter 10 presents results from a ceramic seriation of undecorated pottery to identify temporally-sensitive attributes.

They identify several attributes that are particularly sensitive to time: temper, slip, and polish. They also note several other variables that display slight variation through time. These authors propose...


Vanishing River Volume 4: Chapter 18: Research Design Revisited: Processual Issues in the Prehistory of the Lower Verde Valley (1997)
