The Archaeology of Pueblo Pottery: A History of Ancestral Pueblo Pottery Studies in the Southwest

Pueblo Pottery Poster 2.0

What are archaeologists learning from the remarkable pottery crafted by the ancestral Pueblo Indians? Around A.D. 200, Pueblo people in the Southwest began producing pottery—utilitarian brown wares, and later, exquisitely painted white wares. Dr. Kari Schleher, an expert in the study of ancient pottery in the Southwest, will discuss how the study of pottery is helping to address questions of migration and community development in the Basketmaker III period (A.D. 500–750). September 22 at 6:00 pm in the Wilkinson Public Library Program Room. This event is FREE and open to the public.
