Above is the Farm House ruin.  The interpretive sign shown to the right was nearby.  It was right here that I saw a small bit of black and white pottery embedded into the tire track of the dirt roadway.  Although you are not supposed to move any artifacts, I could not leave this shard in the roadway to get driven over countless times.

 

There were two forms of pottery used by the Anasazi.  The serrated pottery, shown above, was for utility ware.  It was made by rolling a long strip of clay and coiling it into the desired form.  The serrations are probably part of the process of making the pot.

 

A shard of the black and white pottery.  This highly designed pottery was the Anasazi's "fine china".  Be sure and put any pieces you find back where you found them.
