Electron Microprobe and Petrographic Analyses of Prehistoric Hohokam Pottery to Deter. Mine Ceramic Exchange Within The Salt River Vallty, Arizona

  • David R. Abbott (a1) and David M. Schaller (a1)


Ceramic analysis with an electron microprobe and thin-section petrography are used to investigate prehistoric exchange among the Hohokam of the Salt River valley, Arizona. These complimentary techniques can be useful for resolving the special problems that arise when studying ceramic exchange over short distances.
