The pottery assemblage from recent excavations at the Pethick site in Schoharie County, New York contains 39 vessels. These were analyzed to determine various attributes associated with the sherds and how the vessels were used in a domestic setting. The materials from the Pethick site suggest that most of these vessels exhibit similar attributes and designs. An analysis of the temper and inclusions suggests that some of the vessels may have been produced elsewhere. Comparisons with other sites in the Schoharie Valley are assessed and provide an interesting look at ceramics in eastern New York.
