Summary

Research and excavations conducted at the Blackwater Draw Site have largely contributed to our understanding of Paleoindian era life. This study focuses on the lithic artifacts recovered from the South Bank portion of the Blackwater Draw Site to understand the mobility of Folsom and Late Paleoindian occupations. Although there has been extensive fieldwork conducted at the South Bank, the lithic artifacts from these excavations have not been studied as one cohesive assemblage. The entirety of the Folsom and Late Paleoindian assemblages from the South Bank are used to conduct a lithic attribute analysis to identify and compare the mobility of these occupations. This research also spotlights new information concerning South Bank artifacts, much of which is unpublished and unknown to the greater field of archaeology.
