Summary

Pottery is thought to have been introduced into the Mogollon region sometime between A.D. 1 and A.D. 500, probably closer to A.D. 500 than A.D. 1. Dating of the HO-Bar Site and the paucity of ceramics suggest these ceramics are some of the earliest ceramics of the Mogollon Early Pithouse period. A geoarchaeological analysis of the site indicates a main occupation between 200 B.C. and A.D. 200. Typological and functional analyses of 355 sherds and 26 rims from the excavation of approximately 30 cubic meters are used to examine the implications of this set of ceramics for the chronological placement and range of functions of these ceramics.
