V. NOTES ON BEAD STRINGING AT LOVELOCK CAVE, NEVADA John Carroll
Beads and ornaments made from Pacific Coast shells have been found in
archaeological sites throughout North America. The abundance and stylistic
variation of shell beads as they occur over time in archaeological sites make
them useful as chronological guides, and they are used in parts of California for
this purpose in the same way as projectile points in the Great Basin and ceramics
in the Southwest.

According to the shell bead classification scheme established by Bennyhoff and
Hughes (1987:121-122), all but one bead from Burial 8 fit into the category of end
- ground beads (Class B2a-c). This category consists of ... attributes of the Burial
9 beads. Based on this analysis, it now appears that at the Braden site both small
and medium-sized, end ground Olivella beads appear earlier in the
archaeolgical record than in California and the western Great Basin. Discussion

incising which is common in Southern California. The origin of the style of surface
incision found on the remaining beads (excluding the scoop bead) is quite
uncertain because none of the specimens from the Great Basin can be
adequately dated (all are surface finds). In so far as the other beads found at
each site are a reliable guide, the Ch-2 specimen should date from Middle
Horizon times at the latest. Beads from the Humboldt Lakebed site run from
Middle Horizon to protohistoric ...

(In California and the Southwest, millingstones are often called metates — meh-
TAH-tehs.) Also typical are beads of olivella shell with the spire cut off, bone awls,
large triangular points, "cogstones" of unknown function, and stone crescents
comparable to those of the Great Basin (see Figure 24, page 257). 2. Hunting
