ABSTRACTThe Western Stemmed and Paleocoastal technocomplexes are prevalent in western North America. A working hypothesis states they are associated with the late-Pleistocene human migration into t...

ABSTRACTThe Nenana Valley near Healy, Alaska, has been the site of many decades of prehistoric archaeological research focused on the late Pleistocene and early Holocene records. New research at the Little Panguingue Creek (LPC) site (HEA-038) provides us with important information about Pleistocene–Holocene human activities in the Nenana Valley foothills. This multi-component site is located on a Healy-aged glacial-outwash terrace, overlooking LPC. A new multi-year excavation program, begun in ...

Abstract Soil micromorphology is an excellent tool for relating quantitative laboratory data to soil development in complex pedogenic settings. This study utilizes micromorphology, scanning electron microscopy, bulk soil geochemistry, clay mineralogy, and particle-size analysis to reconstruct the depositional and pedogenic history of the Serpentine Hot Springs fluted point site on the Seward Peninsula, Alaska. Sediment deposition occurred via colluviation, which dominated during the late glacial...

Fluted projectile points have long been recognized as the archaeological signature of early humans dispersing throughout the Western Hemisphere; however, we still lack a clear understanding of their appearance in the interior “Ice-Free Corridor” of western Canada and eastern Beringia. To solve this problem, we conducted a geometric morphometric shape analysis and a phylogenetic analysis of technological traits on fluted points from the archaeological records of northern Alaska and Yukon, in comb...

In the Great Basin of western North America, studies of prehistoric human technology have long been conducted in an ecological, evolutionary context. Here we review evidence of long-term environmental and technological change at Bonneville Estates Rockshelter, western Bonneville basin, Nevada. In this region 15,000–8000 calendar years ago, climate became increasingly warm and arid, leading to the drying of an extensive pluvial lake system and radical changes in vegetation and mammal communities....
