ELMO00000201.jpg Duck Effigy Jar, Alternate View 2ThumbnailsPuerco Black-on-white Bowl
Cultural Period: Ancestral Puebloan (A.D. 1050 – 1225)

Description: Bowl described as White Mound Black-on-white in the artifact catalog.

Barbara Mills, Professor and Chair of Anthropology at the University of Arizona , identified this bowl as Puerco Black-on-white.

White Mound Black-on-white dates substantially earlier than Puerco Black-on-white. Given that the bowl was found cached with other ceramics dating to the same period as Puerco Black-on-white, the second classification is likely the more accurate. White Mound Black-on-white is also quite rare in the El Morro region, and the banded motifs on this bowl are more consistent with Puerco Black-on-white.

Provenience: Found in a cache within El Morro National Monument along with ELMO-200, ELMO-202, and ELMO-203.

Collection: National Park Service, El Morro.
