Projectile Point Temporal Trends During the Mimbres Georgetown Phase

Author(s): Christopher Turnbow

Year: 2015


Past excavations of Mimbres Georgetown phase occupations at the Diablo Village and Cuchillo sites produced assemblages critical to the refinement of the Mimbres projectile point chronology. Derived from structures and tightly dated contexts ranging between the late AD 500s and the 600s, these assemblages reveal evidence of diachronic technological and morphological changes not clearly represented in currently established Mimbres typologies. Of particular interest, a new arrow type called the Diablo Corner Notched is believed to be diagnostic of the phase.
