Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


ISAS investigations for the FAP-310 project exposed a buried Early Holocene living surface at the Vasey site in the uplands north of the American Bottom. We suggest, based on the vertical distribution of temporally diagnostic tools and on raw material compatibility, that the features and material remains associated with this surface result largely from a single Dalton or Theban component. Data from this site, including the results of microwear analysis performed on a cache of scrapers is presented. The nature of the occupation is examined in the context of other, roughly contemporary sites in the area.
