ELMO00000202.jpg Puerco Black-on-white BowlThumbnailsKiatuthlanna Black-on-white Seed Jar, Alternate View
Cultural Period: Ancestral Puebloan (A.D. 1050 – 1225)

Description: Described in the artifact catalog as Red Mesa Black-on-white seed jar with two ears near the rim.

Barbara Mills, Professor and Chair of Anthropology at the University of Arizona, identified this jar as Kiatuthlanna Black-on-white and references the very fine lines in the design.

Both Red Mesa Black-on-white and Kiatuthlanna Black-on-white date between A.D. 850 and 1050 (1100 for Red Mesa), while other vessels from the same cache data later, between A.D. 1050 and 1225. This may indicate a mid-line date of A.D. 1050 - 1100 for the cached materials.

Provenience: Found in a cache within El Morro National Monument along with ELMO-200, ELMO-201, and ELMO-203.

Collection: National Park Service, El Morro.
