1The numbers are too small for satisfactory graphic plotting, but indicate that with a larger series of cases the lines for trained and trainless skirts would roughly parallel the combined line shown—one above and one below it. At least two times out of three, perhaps oftener, they would move in the same direction.
1 Clark Wissler, American Anthropologist, N.s., vol. xviii, pp. 190–197, 1916, points out that the distribution of sherds of certain decorative styles in the successive levels of the refuse heap at the ancient New Mexican pueblo of San Cristobal, as excavated and reported on by N. C. Nelson, follows typical curves, these curves each representing “the rise and decline of a culture trait.” Each foot of debris may be taken as representing an approximately equal duration of deposition, as indicated by the fairly steady number of sherds of all types found at each depth. The figures are, for black-on-white painted ware, (103), 107, 118, 40, 8, 2, 6, 10, 2, 2; and for black or brown glazed yellow ware, o, 3, 45, 91, 192, 128, 52, 68, 64, 24. The latter series may be skew.
