Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[Ice Age Hunters of the Rockies] contribute[s] substantially to understanding the colonization of the New World. What is more, by looking at Paleoindian assemblages in new ways and with better methodologies, by documenting variation among stone-tool assemblages, and by developing ways to scrutinize dates and stratigraphy, the Paleoindian archaeology described [here] will benefit all archaeology."
- American Anthropologist

"The level of scholarship is uniformly high throughout. . . . The studies in this book demonstrate that researchers of the Paleoindian period, particularly of Folsom, are conducting painstaking field research and finding innovative ways to analyze their material."
- North American Archaeologist
