Pottery. Typewritten on photo sleeve: "Indian artifacts found at NTS. The complete Paiute brownware bowl is a rare find because the Paiutes were not expert craftsmen and their crude pottery did not stand up under exposure. The Paiutes were too busy trying to eke out the means of life in this hard land to become artisans. The other two bowls, which were found broken, are unusual because the bottoms are relatively flat, particularly the bowl on the left. The two rocks were used as grinding stones, the pot sherds show evidence of more refined pottery making and probably are fragments of trading pieces from other tribes."
