A Late Pleistocene-Early Holocene Site in the Western Great Basin: A Preliminary Study of the Rose Valley Site (CA-INY-1799)
Author(s): Anthony Morales
The Rose Valley site (CA-INY-1799) has considerable potential for providing a deeper understanding of Paleo-Indian adaptations in the Far West. For over 40 years, archaeologists have observed artifacts on the surface of the Rose Valley Site that suggest the presence of a terminal Pleistocene-early Holocene component. Recent analyses of existing collections by other researchers have revealed Paleoindian artifacts such as Clovis/Great Basin Concave Base points, Great Basin stemmed points, crescents, and debitage indicative of Clovis lithic technology. In 2017, California State University, Los Angeles, began a multi-year investigation that includes mapping, systematic recording, and test excavations at the site.
