Who were the first humans to inhabit North America? According to the now familiar story, mammal hunters entered the continent some 12,000 years ago via a land bridge that spanned the Bering Sea. Distinctive stone tools belonging to the Clovis culture established the presence of these early New World people. But are the Clovis tools Asian in origin?...
Article
In 1977 and 1978, test excavations in a proposed highway construction zone revealed a Soho phase irrigation canal just to the west of Pueblo Grande, Phoenix, Arizona. The stratigraphic and artifact content of the canal feature is discussed and interpretations of the canal's history are presented. RESUMEN En 1977 y 1978, las excavaciónes de prueba...
Article
Historically, cultural revitalization movements have been a common mechanism of culture change among North American indigenous groups. Drawing on research at Sand Canyon Pueblo, this article applies a model of the revitalization process to the mid-thirteenth century in the Mesa Verde region. Architectural forms and ritual artifacts appear to reflec...
Article
Pelroglyphs in building blocks have been reported at sites in southwestern Colorado since the explorations on Mesa Verde in the early part of this century. Although they have been noted, they are quite rare, and very little is known about how they were originally incorporated in structures. Recent finds at Sand Canyon Pueblo may show a correlation...
Chapter
This chapter presents a summary and remarks regarding the Horner site excavations and studies, in addition to a review of Paleoindian society. As the Horner site located in the Bighorn Basin in northwest Wyoming produced both Eden and Scottsbluff types of Paleoindian projectile points in situ within the same cultural context and was located close t...
Article
Analytical procedures applied to Acheulian artefacts have reached an impasse. The process known as a reduction sequence provides an alternative framework for analyses, leading to an improved understanding of the factors controlling variability within Acheulian assemblages. Examples drawn from Caddington in the Chiltern Hills of southern England ind...
Article
Two tools, one made of elk antler and the other made from a bison metatarsal, were recovered in an in situ Folsom component and are believed to have been used in removal of Channel flakes from Folsom projectile points. This offers the first known archeological evidence that can be used to argue that the process made use of controlled pressure throu...

Arizona P: 10:7 proved to be a prehistoric camp site with two temporally and, to some extent, spatially separated occupations. The site was first occupied briefly between A.D. 600 and 950. Four hearths, earl...
