Clovis and Dalton: Unbounded and Bounded Systems in the Midcontinent of North America

Brad H. Koldehoff, Thomas J. Loebel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this chapter, information from recent lithic procurement studies is used to make inferences about patterns of land use and social interaction. Clovis and Dalton patterns are compared and contrasted highlighting important differences that support the conclusion that Dalton culture does not represent a continuation of Paleoindian lifeways, but rather, represents a new, more sedentary lifestyle that created bounded landscapes and laid the foundation for subsequent cultural developments.
