Paleoindian Subsistence Dynamics on the Northwestern Great Plains

Zooarchaeology of the Agate Basin and Clary Ranch

Matthew G. Hill


This study illuminates structural variability in hunter/gatherer diet and subsistence behavior under conditions of low population density and rapid ecological reorganization. More specifically, it explores several unresolved issues relating to the diet and subsistence behavior of post-Clovis Paleoindian hunter/gatherers who inhabited the Northwestern Great Plains of North America during the late Pleistocene/early Holocene (ca. 11-8,000 years ago).
