This Bowl is an example of an unknown Mimbres style 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,, 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.
