The Pre-Ceramic Subsistence Patterns in the Great Plains

Author(s): Richard P. Wheeler

Year: 1952


In this document, Richard P Wheeler synthesizes in chart form knowledge of Early Man – or rather of pre-pottery making men – in the Plains area according to inferable subsistence patterns, in chronological order. On this level of anthropological abstraction, the task was not difficult because of the scarcity of known information. Wheeler’s perspective also includes a brief history of the development of American paleontology.
