Vanishing River: Attached Report: Petrographic and Qualitative Analyses of Sands and Sherds from the Lower Verde River Area

Part of the Lower Verde Archaeological project

Author(s): James M. Heidke; Diana C. Kamilli; Elizabeth Miksa

Year: 1997

Summary

The goal of the present study is to identify the provenance of ceramics recovered from the Lower Verde Archaeological Project (LVAP) sites on the basis of the temper found within them (Ciolek-Torrello et al. 1992:III-75 to III-85). The focus of this attached report is on sand temper used in pottery vessels. Ceramic wares and/or types produced within the study area are distinguished from those imported from other areas. A reconnaissance sample of wash sands from the lower Verde River area was collected and analyzed to provide the information on geological sources necessary to reach this goal.
