Analytical Challenges Posed by the Early Holocene / Late Paleoindian Activity Areas at the Water Canyon Site, West-Central New Mexico: How Do We Know What We Think We Know? (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Robert Dello-Russo. Banks Leonard. Robin Cordero.

Accuracy in the identification of Late Pleistocene-Early Holocene open activity areas and the subsequent inference of human behavior requires that non-behavioral causes for differential spatial patterning be considered before approaching the question of how patterning reflects human activities. Such challenges in the interpretation of behavioral patterning are exemplified at the Water Canyon Paleoindian site. In this paper, we initially describe the lithic and bone assemblages recovered from the...


Dust Cave Site, AL (1LU496) Project
PROJECT Uploaded by: Renee Walker

Faunal data from Dust Cave Alabama, Renee B. Walker dissertation (University of Tennessee, 1998). Archaic deposits from Dust Cave date between and 5,200 years ago with four distinct Archaic occupations. These include the Early Side-Notched and Kirk Stemmed components (Early Archaic), and the Eva/Morrow Mountain component and Seven Mile Island phase (Middle Archaic). The preservation, and subsequent recovery, of faunal material at the site is exceptional, with an abundance of small fish and...

Experimental Analysis of Late Paleoindian Bone Tools at Bull Creek in Oklahoma (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Tressa Munger. Lindsey Romig. Amelia Cisar. Noah Fisher. Kristen Carlson.

Summer of 2016 excavations at the Late Paleo-Indian campsite, Bull Creek, in the panhandle of Oklahoma resulted in unique bone tool discoveries. Within a bone pile butchering feature, containing ribs and a vertebral column, a mandible tool was found in situ wedged into the head of a rib. The mandibular notch appears to have been used to pry the rib heads from the spinal column with the coronoid process and condylar process imbedded around the rib head. In addition to the mandible a scapula tool...


The Late Paleoindian Cody Complex Component at Lamb Spring, Colorado (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Edward Knell.

The Late Paleoindian Cody complex component at Lamb Spring, Colorado was recently reanalyzed. While best known for its possible association with Late Pleistocene fauna, the Lamb Spring Cody component with its nearly 2,000 bison bones, seven Eden projectile points, Cody knife fragment, and two flakes has largely been overlooked and incompletely described in the literature (excepting McCartney’s study of the bison bones). To remedy the situation I: (1) use prior publications, reports and the...


Learning From Ancestors: A New Interpretation of an 11,100 year old San Patrice Double Burial from Horn Shelter, No. 2, Central Texas (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Margaret Jodry.

Recent Smithsonian study of belongings placed with a 40 year-old man and an eleven year-old girl suggests that the adult may have been a healer. A bundle lying beneath his head includes turtle shell bows, antler pestles, red ochre, a deer bone stylus, sandstone abraders, and an Edward's chert biface. Perforated shell beads and coyote teeth, non-perforated badger claws and Swainson's hawk talons, and other items accompanied this Elder. His participation in body painting, scarification, and...


Lithic Procurement Patterning as a Proxy for Identifying Late Paleoindian Group Mobility along the Lower Tennessee River Valley (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ryan Parish.

The Tennessee and Cumberland River Valleys boast some of the highest concentrations of diagnostic Paleoindian artifact finds in the Americas. However, many of these finds are from secondary contexts void of associated deposits. The study utilizes chert provenance data, obtained using reflectance spectroscopy, on a large sample of Late Paleoindian diagnostic bifaces from sites along the Lower Tennessee River Valley. The objective of the study is to visualize group mobility at the close of the...
