Paleo-II-W: a Minor Paleoindian Occupation Site in Macomb County, Michigan

Author(s): Jerry Devisscher; Edward J. Wahla

Year: 1964


In March, 1963, Jerry DeVisscher recognized a small but interesting, Paleo-hunters' occupation site from the characteristic, thin, tiny, secondary flakes that appeared on.the surface after a. very heavy rain. The site has been under cultivation for generations and a general eastward drifting of the sandy surface has taken place forming small dunes and altering surface levels. We have designated it Paleo-II-W (West). This article summarizes investigations and results from the site.
