I find a lot of pottery but know nothing about it. Can anyone shed some light on what I have found? How do I post pictures? I have about 6 pieces of pottery with black and white paint on them. They are an inch to 4 inches in size and were found in southeastern Arizona where an apache Indian massacre took place. Most are painted on the inside

I am guessing that the black and white is Anasazi. I was gifted some once long ago for a frame. It looks like that. Member named Joshua Reams on here is the expert on that type. Maybe someone more knowledgeable than me will chime in:tongue3:. Got a lot of Western hunters..

I think the disk is what they refer to as a pottery disk reused from a broken piece of pottery as for use who knows I think ive seen a few drilled before also.

Id like to see a better pic of the Disc and maybe something for size on it and a side view of it showing if there is any grinding on the edges. If it is a Disc it would of been used for games. Thanks, rock

Id say Game Piece on it. I have found one or two before. They came in all sizes. It does have a little damage on the one side. Some came with decorations on them and some were painted. Mine are plain. Very nice find, rock
