Settlement Organization of Paleoindian Caribou Hunters: Inferences from the Israel River Complex, Jefferson NH.
Author(s): Richard Boisvert
A long-term research project in northern New Hampshire has identified nearly 20 Paleoindian components within a one kilometer by half kilometer space overlooking the Israel River. Consideration of the spatial distribution of tools and debris within the components and the distribution of these components on the landscape suggest a rigorous organization of migrating bands of Paleoindians who focused on caribou hunting. Site specific topography appears to be an essential element in the selection and use of various components in the cluster of sites
