Solutrean Seal Hunters?
The claim for purported similarities in the artifact assemblages of Solutrean Paleolithic foragers (23,500–20,000 cal bp) and Clovis Paleoindians (13,300–12,800 cal bp) has resulted in the resurgenceExpand
Technological variation in the earliest Oldowan from Gona, Afar, Ethiopia.
TLDR
It is proposed that cultural transmission and ecological adaptation should be recognized as complementary, rather than mutually exclusive, mechanisms in future attempts to explain Oldowan technological variation. Expand
A Fresh Look at the Age and Cultural Affiliation of the Sheaman Site
Abstract The Sheaman site in Wyoming was discovered in 1973 and excavated a few years later. It has since entered the archaeological literature as one of the few Clovis campsites in the AmericanExpand
On the Chronological Structure of the Solutrean in Southern Iberia
TLDR
It is concluded that the traditional organization of the Solutrean cannot be unquestionably confirmed for Southern Iberia, calling into doubt the status of the classically-defined type-fossils as precise temporal markers. Expand
Ten years of Solutreans on the ice: a consideration of technological logistics and paleogenetics for assessing the colonization of the Americas

MORE ON THE RUMOR OF “INTENTIONAL OVERSHOT FLAKING” AND THE PURPORTED ICE-AGE ATLANTIC CROSSING
Abstract Lohse, Collins, and Bradley ignore or misrepresent the arguments we have made concerning “controlled” overshot flaking and the purported Ice-Age Atlantic Crossing. Here, we summarize ourExpand
The Solutrean Atlantic Hypothesis: A View from the Ocean
