A Collection of Pottery Sherds from King Hill, Idaho

Document Type


Publication Date



This paper describes a collection of 196 pottery sherds from the vicinity of King Hill, Idaho (see, Figure 1). The collection was brought to the author by Mr. Armond Taylor of Boise. The sherds were collected by an acquaintance of Mr. Taylor some thirty years ago. The collection, though its exact provenience is unknown, is of interest since a somewhat unusual ceramic assemblage, including incised decoration, was recovered at the Clover Creek site at King Hill (Plew and Gould, 1990, see also Plew and Bennick 1990). The collection documents an additional riverine locality where pottery has been discovered. This is relevant to the recently advanced distributional hypothesis positing seasonal use of ceramics in upland and riverine contexts (Plew and Bennick 1990).
