This paper reports on and synthesizes what was known, as of 1984, about the conveyance of shell beads during the Fremont Period (ca. A.D. 400 –1300) in the eastern Great Basin. Detailed site-speci c analyses of extant data indicate that the majority of shell beads imported during this time interval came from Southern California.
