Artifact Description and Proveniences for the Ringo Site, Southeastern Arizona

Author(s): Alfred E. Johnson; Raymond H. Thompson

Year: 1963


During the summer of 1962, the archaeological field school of the University of Arizona conducted excavations at the Ringo site situated on the west slope of the Chiricahua Mountains in Cochise County, Arizona. The Ringo site was essentially Mogollon with late additions from the Western Pueblo region. It was occupied in the period between A.D. 1250 and 1325. Significant information derived from the site is summarized in AMERICAN ANTIQUITY, Vol. 28, No. 4. The present report includes detailed descriptions of artifacts and provenience data not included in that article.

The Archives of Archaeology Series is a 29-volume set jointly published by the University of Wisconsin Press and the Society for American Archaeology on opaque microcards, a now obsolete format. The Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at the University of Wisconsin—La Crosse has digitized the original opaque microcards and made the digital copies available through tDAR. More information on the process of digitizing the series can be found in Joseph Tiffany’s 2012 article entitled "Digitizing the Archives of Archaeology Series" in the SAA Archaeological Record (
