Quick Reference


Archaic Stage hunter‐gatherer communities living in the Plateau area of northeastern California in North America in the period c.4000–3000 bc. Permanent villages are known, from which groups would venture out on foraging missions to occupy small temporary camps for short periods. The Menlow diet included bison, deer, antelope, mountain sheep, rabbit, and a range of other small mammals. They also processed and consumed nuts, to judge from the presence of pestles and mortars.
