Quick Reference

[Si]

A deeply stratified sequence of cave deposits representing a series of occupations and use from 10 000 bc down to about 5000 bc. Excavated by Emil Haury in 1941, the earliest levels yielded projectile points of Clovis/Folsom types. A single grinding stone is suggestive of some interest in plant foods. Later levels include Desert Tradition finds.
