Choui village. The discovery of this ruin gives us a basis of comparison which is very important.
A map of the village will be prepared, and we hope to do some excavating in the vicinity, in time.

MUSEUM CATALOGUE OF THE NEBRASKA STATE
COMPILED BY E. E. BLACKMAN.
When the specimens bearing the first numbers were catalogued it was not expected that the museum would attain to a dignity beyond that of a simple workshop, and study specimens were given numbers the same as others. A number of specimens which had been catalogued were returned to the owners. This explains why so many numbers are left out.
It is not thought best to cumber the catalogue with insignificant specimens, and these numbers will be used for important specimens later on. Many specimens are stored for want of room to properly display them, and these are not included in this catalogue.
