This Mimbres vessel dates from 1000-1150 CE. The Mimbres, a Mogollon group, lived near the Mimbres River in a mountainous area in the southwest corner of New Mexico from c. 1000-1250 CE. Their clay vessels display a major advance in technology over previous Mogollon ceramics. They may have been influenced by the neighboring Anasazi and also by ideas from Mesoamerica exchanged by trade through Casas Grandes. (Iris & B.
