Haskett and its Clovis Parallels

Author(s): Daron Duke; Daniel Stueber

Year: 2019


This is an abstract from the "Current Perspectives on the Western Stemmed Tradition-Clovis Debate in the Far West" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.

Haskett represents an initiating point style in some parts of western North America. Radiocarbon dates suggest the earliest Haskett occupations were within the Clovis era, and Haskett shares several technological and geographic attributes that are more in kind with Clovis than with later stemmed styles. Here we emphasize these similarities—such as high craftsmanship, widespread toolstone conveyance, large spear-knife functionality, and accompanying hunting-based tool forms—to clarify the dialogue about how Haskett fits into the story of North America’s interior colonization.
