#3715, Not Mimbres series Unknown from Mattocks

Part of the Mimbres Pottery Images Digital Database (MimPIDD) (DRAFT) project

Year: 2012


This vessel is an example of Not Mimbres series from the Mattocks site, a Mimbres village in the middle Mimbres Valley, in Grants County, southwestern New Mexico. Mattocks was occupied during the Late Pithouse and Classic Mimbres periods (ca. AD 550-1130). It has eight Classic roomblocks with a total of about 180 rooms. Mattocks was partly excavated by Paul Nesbitt (Logan Museum, Beloit College) in 1929. Then, in the 1970s, it was a key focus of research by the Mimbres Foundation (LeBlanc 1983: Chapter 8, http://library.lib.asu.edu/search~S3?/aLeBlanc%2C+Steven/aleblanc+steven/1%2C2%2C16%2CB/frameset&FF=aleblanc+steven+a&9%2C%2C15), and much of the material from that work is at the Maxwell Museum, University of New Mexico. Archaeology Southwest now has the easement for the Mattocks site in perpetuity.
