On September 22, 1951, Marc Navarrete brought word to the Arizona State Museum of the discovery of two large projectile points in association with mammoth bones exposed in an arroyo eroded by Greenbush Creek one mile northwest of Naco, Arizona (Fig. 1). Marc Navarrete and his father, Fred, for some fifteen years have been watching the arroyo for fossils as erosion widened and deepened it. A bone concentration, though known for some time, was freshly exposed by floods resulting from heavy summer… 
New Light on the Midland Discovery
Abstract Additional excavation in 1955 confirmed the previously reported stratigraphic sequence at Midland, Texas. Within the gray sand, which had yielded a fragmentary human calvarium, there were
The Naco Clovis Site: Old Excavations and New Dates
ABSTRACT Archival research demonstrates that a previously unpublished second season of excavations took place at the Naco Clovis site in 1953, more than doubling the extent of the excavated area and

The Anzick Site (24PA506) is a multi-component archaeological site located in the Shields River Valley of south-central Montana approximately 125 km north of Yellowstone National Park. The site was
Fluted Projectile Points: Their Age and Dispersion
The stratigraphic record shows Clovis projectile points to be restricted to sediments between 11,000 and 11,500 years old, while the glacial history of Alaska, Canada, and the Great Lakes region indicates that an ice-free, trans-Canadian corridor opened up approximately 12,000 years ago.
Ecology of the North American Paleo-Indian
It is suggested that comprehensive regional reconstructions of the late glacial-postglacial environments are somewhat premature and the reconstructions available are used in the discussion of early man's environmental adaptation with full knowledge that they are in a constant state of change.
New Discoveries at the Clovis Site
Abstract Excavations at the Clovis site near Portales, New Mexico, in 1962 and 1963 produced much new information on the Llano complex. This work, which was done principally by the El Llano

Abstract A fossiliferous remnant of a small lacustrine unit was discovered in an arroyo midway between the Santa Catalina Mountains and the San Pedro River, Pinal County, Arizona. Radiocarbon dates


Artifacts Associated With Fossil Elephant
In December 1934, Judge J. A. Mead discovered a spear in association with an elephant skeleton near Miami in Roberts County, Texas. During 1937 this locality was excavated. The elephant bones were

A review of the existing evidence as to the date when trenching began in southwestern United States indicates that these changes were initiated at slightly different times in each stream and occupied a considerable period in their accomplishment.

Arroyo-Cutting and Filling
Arroyos are the vertical-walled, flat-floored channels of ephemeral streams of the semiarid Southwest formed both since 1880 and during some past ages. Arroyo-cutting takes place because the plant
