Ware Name: Cibola-Tusayan Early Red Ware

First posted by C. Dean Wilson 2014

Early slipped red wares represent a rare but extremely widely scattered group that reflect the application of red slip over a lighter paste exhibiting sand temper. Pottery exhibiting similar characteristics can occur in are across the Cibola, Tusayan, and Middle Rio Grande regions. Such pottery appears to have been produced from the Basketmaker III to early part of the Pueblo I period. This pottery seems to have derived from types, such San Francisco Red, that appears to have been produced during the earliest Mogollon periods. Pottery assigned to this group does not appear to be related to types associated with any other red ware tradition produced in the Colorado Plateau.
