Painted designs are simple in layout and have thick black and red painted lines. Occupation in the Casas Grandes region began with small settlements from 600 A.D. to 1075 A.D. that was clearly related to other early manifestations of the Mogollon culture and are reflected by a number of distinct brown ware and red on brown types. While Casas Grandes is commonly associated with Paquime which was clearly the heart of Casas Grandes tradition during the Medio period, it represented one site among hundreds in an interaction sphere that began to emerge just after 1150 A.D. and continued until the abandonment of Paquime at about 1450 A.D.
