Abstract

Researchers on the Great Plains of North America have come to terms with a need to better understand the chronological sequence of the Paleoindian period. Dating this period has been problematic; however, current improved methods are now available to reevaluate this chronology. To evaluate change through time of hunting strategies and land use practices we need to step back and clarify chronology. This article looks at six Paleoindian bison kill sites, three from the northern and three from the southern Plains, and revaluates the dates from each.
