Chipped stone artifacts from Polvo that were collected from the surface by J. Charles Kelley in 1948. In the upper left is a Jora dart point—a poorly defined type originally identified in northern Mexico which dates to the Middle Archaic—one of the rare finds of relatively early artifacts in the La Junta district. The other items in the top row from left to right are two scrapers and a bifacial knife. The bottom row from left to right consists of a small thin biface probably representing an arrow point preform and various arrow points: Toyah, Perdiz, triangular, Harrell, and the tip of a stemmed arrow point.
