Abstract

Numerous lines of evidence demonstrate the presence of specialized ceramic production in the Tucson Basin in the Rincon phase (A.D. 900-1100). Research at a production center, the West Branch site, provides information on the social and economic contexts within which specialization occurred. Archaeologiical data from this village are compared to consumer villages in order to examine the organization and possible causes of specialized ceramic production.
