PERIOD: Chino Phase
DATES: AD 1150 to 1300, coincident with the Chino Phase; dates only a rough
estimate. Type probably restricted to the later portion of the phase, based
on temporal distribution of other white paint decorated types in Central Arizona,
such as Sunset, Salado, and Gila white-on-reds.
See Ware Description, except:
Decoration and Paint: painted; white kaolin paint with chalky luster, usually
thick and opaque, sometimes exfoliated leaving only a whitish "shadow." Narrow
line designs; element and motif range not well known.
RANGE: : Presently only reported from the Prescott heartland and its eastern
margins--the Upper Verde, Chino, and Williamson Valleys [check this carefully--this
is the list for P r/g and Prescott W/g is said to have a "similar" range,
but we should be specific here, not referential]
