Baking Stones - Slabs of stone used by the ancient Indian tribes of Southern California.  They were usually of soapstone, hollowed out on one side and rounded on the other.  A fire was built under the rounded portion.  Many such stones have been dug up and today are in museums.  They are similar to the flat baking stones which the Hopi and other Pueblo Indians use in making their paper or wafer bread.
