Contemporary analysts regularly identify variations in Fremont ceramic temper that exceed Madsen’s descriptions. In Interpreting Silent Artefacts: Petrographic Approaches to Archaeological Ceramics, edited by Patrick S. As these settlement clusters coalesced, a 45 km expanse of empty land opened between the upland pueblos and the densely packed Hohokam population centers in the Phoenix Basin. Second, I investigate social boundaries by examining multiple lines of evidence.In addition, key observations from previous analyses were omitted from the Madsen typology. A current theory termed the Verde Confederacy Model contends that this gap in settlement reflected mounting social tensions between populations in the irrigated river valleys of the Phoenix Basin and people living in the rugged high country to the north (Wilcox et al. The model posits that defensive alliances formed between northern settlements to deter attacks from Hohokam invaders. Previous researchers have tended to focus on one category of data at the expense of others.

With this provenance model, I reconstruct the organization of utilitarian ceramic production and exchange, and argue that plain ware distribution is a proxy for networks of socially proximate friends and relatives.
