Kelley’s first article on his archeological work at La Junta was the cover story for the October, 1939 edition of El Palacio, the leading journal of Southwestern archeology and history of the day. He reported his excavation of the first house he uncovered at the Millington site in 1937 and summarized the Bravo Valley aspect. This cover photo may be the only surviving image of the circular pithouse he assigned to the Concepcion focus. Kelley describes the structure in laudable detail and notes parallels with pithouses in both the Southwest and the Plains. Download article. Download pdf
