Mimbres Plain - CA. 1025-1300

Mimbres Plain seems to be a late, local variant of Alma Plain, as Reserve Smudged was at the Starkweather Ruin. Vessels tend to have thicker walls than the Alma series. Jars are shouldered, similar to Salado pottery, and throughout it appears that the Mimbres had closer ties to cultures to the west than those to the north.
