Aug 20 Thursday Night Lecture Series- with Jim Allison San Juan Red Ware Pottery Production & Exchange. Ancestral Pueblo societies in the Four Corners region underwent a series of changes beginning in the late 8th century A.D. Including population increases, the formation of large villages, & changes in ritual practices. At the same time, a new type of pottery, San Juan Red Ware, began to be made in southeastern Utah. This red ware pottery was traded widely, & archaeologists often find it in contexts that suggest it was important to communal ritual. Analysis of red ware distributions shows that there was relatively little exchange among the production area sites in southeastern Utah. San Juan Red Ware was obtained, however, by Ancestral Pueblo people living to the east of the red ware production zone in what is now southwestern Colorado,& red ware exchange linked Ancestral Pueblo people across the region through complex networks of interaction that cross-cut apparent differences among social groups. Sponsored by Canyonlands Natural History Association (CNHA) & Museum of Moab. 6pm at the Moab Information Center, Corner of Center & Main.
