TYPE: Rincon Phase Gila Plain

DATE: A.D. 950 to 1125 (Wallace 2003;22)

See General Description of Gila Plain

COMMON FORMS: Bowls and jars, crucibles.

COMMON COLORS: Brown, can be tan to brown to orange to black.

MICACEOUS TEMPER: Variable, very little, to a high amount.

KEY DIFFRENCES: Tucson Basin Plainware usually has very little or no mica.  Gila Plain (also produced in the Tucson as well as Phoenix Basins) has visible mica-schist flakes on the surface.

COMMENTS: As discussed in the comments section under Gila Plain , forms are not always a reliable way to date plainware to phases.  The only way is by certain specific forms or treatments, or to find the plainware in direct association with other dateable ceramics.
