Olivella shell beads are ubiquitous at California Indian sites and were traded far inland by local inhabitants. Their distinctive patterns of manufacture provide archaeologists with important chronological, morphological, and distributional information. This guide, authored by a professional artefact replicate and an archaeological expert on shell bead typology, offers a well-developed 16-category typology, including the descriptive, temporal, and metric characteristics of each style, illustrated with almost 200 color photographs. Spiral bound to facilitate field and laboratory work, it is an essential tool for conducting archaeology in the American west.
