Ancestral Pueblo peoples in east-central Arizona crafted a unique type of representational-style pottery (Fourmile Polychrome) by the early AD 1300s. Questions remain about where the type was manufactured and how it circulated in the region. We present the results of a neutron activation analysis (NAA) of sherds from three villages where the type was likely produced. Building on earlier research, our analyses clarify issues of provenance and speak to the fourteenth-century social networks through which this pottery was exchanged.
