Abstract The Anzick archaeological site in Montana, known since 1968, has been recognized since 1974 as Clovis age because of the lithic material recovered. Now it is possible to assert that some, but not all, of the recovered skeletal material is also Clovis age. The site contained more than 100 stone and nonhuman bone artifacts in association with the partial skeletal remains of a young child. All were covered with red ocher. The partial cranium of a second youth, not stained red, was also… 

The genome of a Late Pleistocene human from a Clovis burial site in western Montana

The genome sequence of a male infant recovered from the Anzick burial site in western Montana is sequenced and it is shown that the gene flow from the Siberian Upper Palaeolithic Mal’ta population into Native American ancestors is also shared by the AnZick-1 individual and thus happened before 12,600 years bp.

Reassessing the chronology of the archaeological site of Anzick

A comprehensive radiocarbon dating program that utilized different pretreatment methods on osseous material from the site suggests that Anzick-1 is temporally coeval with the dated antler rods, implying that the individual is indeed temporally associated with the Clovis assemblage.

Idaho beginnings: A review of the evidence

New evidence on the spatiotemporal distribution and evolution of the Uto-Aztecan premolar.

New data on UAP prevalence from an Archaic North American sample from Buckeye Knoll, Texas is presented and it is suggested the trait evolved considerably earlier than previously thought.

Kennewick Man: The Scientific Investigation of an Ancient American Skeleton

Almost from the day of its accidental discovery along the banks of the Columbia River in Washington State in July 1996, the ancient skeleton of Kennewick Man has garnered significant attention from

Talon cusp from two archaic period cemeteries in North America: implications for comparative evolutionary morphology.

This paper discusses the difficulties with comparative frequency estimation, resulting from a proliferation of terminology that is discipline-specific, in two Archaic period North American samples, Windover Pond and Buckeye Knoll.

A Possible Ritual Cache of Great Basin Stemmed Bifaces from the Terminal Pleistocene—Early Holocene Occupation of Nw Nevada, USA

Abstract Recently, an assemblage of 19 obsidian tools has come to light following the death of their original collector. This collection apparently resultedfrom his excavations in an unknown cave in

Solutrean hypothesis: genetics, the mammoth in the room

The mtDNA X2a evidence is more consistent with the Atlantic route and dates suggested by the Solutrean hypothesis and is more parsimonious than the assumption of a single Beringian entry, that assumes retrograde extinction of X in East Eurasia.



Study of Bone Radiocarbon Dating Accuracy at the University of Arizona NSF Accelerator Facility for Radioisotope Analysis

Bone would seem to be an ideal material for 14C dating because this calcified tissue contains 20 weight per cent protein. Fossil bone, however, can lose most of its original organic matter and

Clovis Technology at the Anzick Site, Montana

This paper discusses our interpretation of Clovis lithic technology based on analysis of the assemblage from the Anzick site (Fig. 1) in southwestern Montana.
