PALEO PAGE

(14000 B.P. to 9000 B.P.)

This section contains arrowheads, artifacts, clovis, cumberland, folsom, dalton, relics, tools, plainview, firstview, beaverlake and many more spefically related to the paleo time period. The use of flints, cherts, quartz, and all other forms of materials at their disposal were used for making useable tools in that their livelihood depended upon for food, clothing, and/or ornamental adornment. In the history of the "paleo indian period" is the scheme of paleolithic chronology which begins with the very first indications of human Habitation within the North American region, and continues until the general onset of the development of agriculture and other proto-civilization traits. The conclusion of this stage may be assigned to approximately 9000 b.p. (there are differences of opinion between sources which recognize the classification), and the transition to the succeeding archaic period is not very well defined. Its starting point is a matter for some speculation, as is the more general question of when human habitation entering into the Americas was first achieved. While it is accepted by a large number of researchers that the first human habitation of the Americas had occurred c.14000 years ago, an alternate number of claims have been made for evidence of human occupation which precede this, some as far back as 40,000 years. General and most all scientific belief for these earlier dates remains elusive, however, and evidence for these claims is yet to be accepted.
