#357, Style III Bowl from McSherry

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

Year: 2012

Summary

This Bowl is an example of Style III from the McSherry site (also known as McSherry ruin). The McSherry site is located near the NAN Ranch ruin in the middle Mimbres River Valley, Grants County, New Mexico. McSherry has at least two Classic Mimbres (ca. A.D. 1000-1130) roomblocks, which were badly damaged by looters. It also has an adjacent Black Mountain phase (ca. A.D. 1200-1300) pueblo, and ceramics suggest the presence of an earlier Pithouse period occupation. Dr. Harry Shafer conducted preliminary excavations at McSherry in 1981 and undertook subsequent surface collections. Artifacts from Shafer?s excavation are curated by the Western New Mexico State University.
