Examining Fremont Snake Valley Black-on-gray Pottery through Neutron Activation Analysis
Author(s): Stephanie Abo
Archaeologists widely argue that Fremont potters from the Parowan Valley, in southwestern Utah, manufactured Snake Valley pottery. I explore the distribution of Fremont Snake Valley Black-on-gray pottery using chemical analyses, metric data, and statistical methods. In my research, I compare neutron activation analysis data from Snake Valley Black-on-gray (SVBG) sherds found at archaeological sites within the Parowan Valley to SVBG sherds found at Fremont sites over 200 kilometers to the north. Through this project I hope to confirm whether the northern sherds were products of potters in the Parowan Valley, or if these sherds were made elsewhere.
