“Interpretations On The Technological Variability in Clovis Lanceolates”
Sergio Ayala, Gault School of Archaeological Research at the Texas Archaeological Research Laboratory at UT Austin
A preliminary survey of Clovis points from all regions of Texas, parts of New Mexico, and Louisiana, reveal a degree of variability in Clovis lanceolate technology, meriting a re-evaluation of our definitions of Clovis. The potential causes for this technological variability and the implications will be discussed.
