Stylistic and technological attributes of prehistoric pottery in the Merrimack River valley of central New Hampshire and northeastern Massachusetts have been used to examine regional interactions during the Middle Woodland period. Ceramic similarity between components has been assessed along such dimensions as type of decorative tool used, orientation of tool application, characteristic tool size and shape as well as type, size, shape and quantity of aplastic inclusions. Ceramic variability and attribute clusters across space correspond to several natural physiographic reaches of the valley. Observed patterns in the distribution of material culture are believed to reflect direction and intensity of human interactions within the confínes of the drainage.
