Abstract : The data recovery of seven early Holocene archeological sites in Nelson Wash, National Training Center, Fort Irwin, California was conducted during the summer of 1983. This report contains the description of artifacts recovered from these sites (4-SBr-4963, 4-SBr-4965, 4-SBr-4966, 4-SBr-4967, 4- SBr-4968, 4-SBr-4949 and 4-SBr-5267) followed by an analysis of use wear, assemblage composition, chronology, subsistence, and settlement patterns directed toward understanding early Holocene cultural adaptation in the Mojave Desert. A typological key for identifying Lake Mojave and Pinto points is proposed and evidence presented of a Lake Mojave-Pinto cultural continuum.
