Chemical and Standardization Analysis Results on Fremont Snake Valley Black-on-gray Pottery

This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Archaeologists widely argue that Fremont potters from the Parowan Valley, in southwestern Utah, manufactured Snake Valley pottery. For my research, I examined various properties of Snake Valley Black-on-gray (SVBG) ceramics using metric data, statistical methods, and newly obtained neutron activation analysis data. I compared my data results on SVBG sherds from archaeological sites within the Parowan Valley to my results on SVBG sherds recovered from archaeological sites over 200 kilometers to the north. My research expands on the limited knowledge of the painted variety of Snake Valley pottery; as well as provides insight into the overall understanding of pottery distribution among different geographical regions within the Fremont culture.
