Ware Name: Pecos Valley White Ware

First posted by C. Dean Wilson 2014

While wide ranges of white ware were described from Pecos Pueblo (Kidder and Amsden 1931), almost all of these were assumed to have been produced in adjacent regions. An exception is Rowe Black-on-white, one of many distinct regional types produced during the Late Coalition period that is commonly identified in sites in the Pecos Valley (Cordell 1998; Habicht-Mauche 1993). The distinct characteristics of this type and its rarity in assemblages from sites in other regions indicate it was probably produced in the Pecos Valley.
