Creator(s): Lori Reed
Mesa Verde style corrugated, globular jar, complete vessel, Accession AZRU-00001, Catalog #1034, Morris FS 5165. Analyzed by Lori Reed 2011. Granular igneous rock temper suggests manufacture at Aztec. Image AZRU1-1034A: exterior view. Image AZRU1-1034B: exterior view closeup of corrugations. Recovered from Earl Morris' excavation of Room A.14, Aztec West Ruin Annex. Earl Morris (1924: 236) provides only a cursory description of Room A.14: “Against the north wall of Room A.14, 1 ½ feet east of the bin was a large handsomely ornamented corrugated pot (Field No. 5165, Fig. 3), its mouth less than 6 inches below the surface. Beneath the yard level under the pot was a fill of approximately 3 feet of clean earth containing a few sandstone spalls. This deposit rested upon a smooth, hard, floorlike layer of adobe beneath which was a thin stratum of sandstone spalls; then what appeared to be country earth.”
