Catalog sheets provide detailed descriptions of specific artifacts recovered from particular collection units (lots). 

For guidance on how to search for a particular kind of artifact, see the guide to navigating the collection.

The descriptions are accompanied by drawings when the item is sufficiently large or well enough preserved to warrant including such an illustration.  The type of artifact described is conveyed using the following abbreviations:

BDS:  Bead
CAND:  Candelero (ceramic artifact with one or more chambers in which smoldering fires were maintained)
CNCMP:  Complex censer lid (top of a cylindrical ceramic incense burner)
CNLP:  Censer prong (cylindrically shaped ceramic object tapering to a point that projected from the top on an incense burner)
CNMDL:  Ceramic modeled incense burner (pottery container decorated through the addition or shaping of clay on its exterior)
DNUTS:  Donut stone (rock with a hole drilled in it)
FWO:  Ceramic figurine, whistle, or ocarina
LCSH: Ladle censer strap handle (grip projecting from a ceramic bowl in which incense was burnt)
MANO:  Mano (stones used to grind materials atop a metate [MTE])
MDRNP:  Modern piece of melted plastic
MDRNRT:  Modern ceramic roof tile
MTE:  Metate (surface of a grinding stone)
PLCN:  Pierced ladle censer (ceramic bowl with holes cut completely through its base)
POLST:  Smoother/Polisher (a stone, purposely shaped or not, with clear signs of smoothing due to human use on one or more of its facets)
SCNL: Scored censer lid (shallow ceramic plate with lines incised on its convex side; often shows evidence of smudging from prolonged exposure to smoke on that side)
STMP: Stamp (ceramic artifact with a deeply engraved design on one side; likely used to apply pigment in that design to skin or cloth)

Note:  Incense burners in all their forms are thought to have been used in religious rites though we cannot rule out the possibility that they served other purposes.
