Abstract

The specific problems which arise in the Chihuahua area, in light of the present developments of American archaeology are:

1. What validity is there in the techniques heretofore used in the chronological placement of archaeological materials gathered from the surface of the earth?

2. What are the implications of the distribution of the different types of specimens recovered from the Bolson de Mapimi terraces?

3. To what archaeological horizons, and to what prehistoric periods, may we assign this material?

4. To what extent do the specimens recovered thus far compare topologically to those already described from like sites and periods?

5. What are the possibilities of synthesis of the Chihuahua material with the like specimens from other locations?
