[Si]

A series of settlement sites along a shallow valley in the Llano Estacado with evidence of occupation from earliest Palaeo‐Indian through to Archaic times. Finds include abundant Clovis and Folsom points, and also well‐made blades. The stone used to make these implements came from over 300 km away, and must therefore have been obtained through exchange or actually travelling out to the source.
