Hunter Corrugated was defined by Wilson and Peckham (1964). While Hunter Corrugated includes trachyte tempered corrugated forms originally defined by fairly flat coil treatment (Windes 1977), it has been redefined to include jars with highly everted rim shapes (Goff and Reed 1998). Thus, using criteria originally employed to define Mesa Verde Corrugated, this type has been redefined to include a range of corrugated treatments on jars with a rim eversion greater than 60 degrees (Goff and Reed 1998). Hunter Corrugated from most areas of the Chuska Valley appears to data from about A.D. 1100to 1300.
