Major Topics:

  • Clovis discovery history
  • Typing points, description, distribution
  • Using nomenclature, attributes, traits
  • Using standards, concepts
  • Modeling Clovis data
  • Recording policy, ethics
  • Analytical methods, practices
  • Recording procedures and processes.

This book contains numerous methods and techniques for recording America’s oldest projectile point which is the Clovis point. It is the best known prehistoric point in American archaeology. This publication contains sections on Clovis distributions, identifying Clovis points, Clovis position in prehistory, recording Clovis, lithic materials, over 1000 Clovis point examples, and an extensive set of references. One major topic is identifying the “true” Clovis point. And, this publication offers ways and means to record and study paleopoints, such as: Clovis discovery history, typing points, description, distribution, using nomenclature, attributes, traits, using standards, concepts, modeling Clovis data, recording policy, ethics, analytical methods, recording procedures, practices, and processes.
