Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document From the Wind Mountain site in New Mexico, twenty painted and unpainted sherds were selected for petrographic analysis. Thin sections of the sherds were then subjected to both qualitative and quantitative observation. Quantitative data were based upon a point-count procedure in which the total area of each thin section was observed at 1 mm. intervals. An estimate of the relative proportions of mineral constituents (i. e. clay matrix, silt, sand, and temper) was thus compiled as a percentage of the total counts per thin section. Through this procedure, four basic properties of the sherds were observed: (1) paste exclusive of temper, (2) kind of temper, (3) temper amount, and (4) temper size (p. 367).
