Presentation Abstracts

North America Before Clovis: Variance in Temporal/Spatial Cultural Patterns, 24,000 to 13,000 BP.

Michael B. Collins, Dennis J. Stanford, and Darrin L. Lowery

A wide range of contrasting cultural patterns occur across North America during various portions of the time period between ~24,000 and 13,000 BP. Each of these is represented by multiple sites and tends to occur in distinctive environmental settings. The extent and variance of this rich archaeological fabric indicates a complex process of peopling the Western Hemisphere, multiple cultural origins, and a long period of human presence prior to the advent of the distinctive Clovis manifestation.
