Jeddito Black-on-yellow

 Ancient pottery is classified by the style and date of manufacture. This style of pottery was made as early as 1325 A.D. The name "Jeddito" comes from the area where the pottery is thought to have originated in modern-day Navajo County, Arizona. The pottery was produced in the Hopi villages, primarily on Antelope and Third Mesas and the pottery was traded extensively across the Southwest, though primarily in, what is now, northern, central, and east-central Arizona.
