This updated 4th Edition, written and sold by the author, was copyrighted in 2018, and has significant updates over older copyright versions being hawked on this site (at a price significantly higher than $16.00). This edition has 77 numbered pages plus 7 un-numbered pages (Contents, Preface, Etc). The Guide was written to serve as a reference for novices in the identification of prehistoric pottery sherds which litter the ground of the northern drainage of the San Juan River basin (SE Utah, SW Colorado, NW New Mexico). The sherds are remnant artifacts of ceramic art fired by the ancestral Puebloans, who flourished there long before Columbus arrived in the New World. The field guide contains descriptions of 31 pottery types; 177 photographs of whole vessels or sherds; 26 illustrations of pottery designs; 10 photographs of dwelling development; a map of the Northern San Juan/Mesa Verde Region; a diagram of pottery vessel forms, and a chart depicting some common rock art styles in Southeastern Utah. Pot sherds are threads In the archaeological record, and belong to posterity; removal from public and Indian land is proscribed by federal law.
