Quick Reference


Archaic Stage hunter‐gatherer kill site or camp close to the edge of a former marsh discovered in 1926 and found to contain distinctive flint tools (Folsom points) in direct association with the remains of 23 carcasses of an extinct form of bison. The importance of the site is twofold, first in providing firm evidence for early settlement in North America, and second as the type‐site for the Folsom Tradition.
