Summary and Conclusion

Evidence of Early Man in North America

By: Edgar B. Howard

Volume XXIV / Number 2-3

Thus we see that evidence has accumulated in recent years to make acceptable certain facts in connection with the problem of man’s early existence in America. We may now bring these together by way of conclusion. First, there seems to be no longer any question that man was contemporaneous in America with types of animals […]

Anthropological Discussion

Evidence of Early Man in North America

By: Edgar B. Howard

Volume XXIV / Number 2-3

This brings us to a consideration of what the physical anthropologists have to say about the affinities of the early peoples of Asia and America. Hooton79 says “that if man did reach the New World in palaeolithic times, he must have come in such small numbers as to leave almost no trace of his culture, […]

Migration Routes

Evidence of Early Man in North America

By: Edgar B. Howard

Volume XXIV / Number 2-3

We have tried to assemble the latest interpretations of certain geological terms which are intimately connected with the problem of early man, and we have tried to give as complete a picture as possible of certain types of stone artifacts which have become recognized in this country as being the earliest we know about. Equipped […]


Folsom and Related Artifacts

Evidence of Early Man in North America

By: Edgar B. Howard

Volume XXIV / Number 2-3

As is inevitably the case when a new name comes into use to describe some specialized object of human workmanship, a good deal of confusion develops as to exactly what is meant. This has happened in the case of certain specialized stone artifacts first discovered at Folsom, New Mexico, a few years ago. The fact […]


Geological Estimates

Evidence of Early Man in North America

By: Edgar B. Howard

Volume XXIV / Number 2-3

In any investigation such as we are attempting, the use of certain geological terms is unavoidable, and since there is a wide range of interpretations of these, it is important to consider their use, and to adopt some definitions for them, which will at least make their meaning consistent in this paper. These words are: […]


Clovis

Evidence of Early Man in North America

By: Edgar B. Howard

Volume XXIV / Number 2-3

Having given the principal facts in connection with the work accomplished at Burnet Cave, we shall now consider the second occurrence of associated “finds” to which we referred in the beginning of this report, namely that covered by archaeological and geological work done in the region of Clovis, New Mexico. The area covered by these […]


Burnet Cave

Evidence of Early Man in North America

By: Edgar B. Howard

Volume XXIV / Number 2-3

In any systematic search for evidences of early man, dry caves probably offer the best opportunity of finding such remains. Specimens found in such caves will be better preserved than those found in open sites. There have been, of course, many discoveries of human remains at open sites, but a large part of the prehistory […]

Introduction

Evidence of Early Man in North America
Based on Geological and Archaeological Work in New Mexico

By: Edgar B. Howard

Volume XXIV / Number 2-3

Abstract Two occurrences in New Mexico—one in a cave and one in old lake beds—establishing associations of extinct animals and stone artifacts, offer evidence that Man lived in America at a time when climatic conditions were different than today. An attempt is here made to show how these discoveries, together with a number of others […]

Foreword

Evidence of Early Man in North America

By: E. B. H.

Volume XXIV / Number 2-3

Since 1929 most of the Spring and Summer months have been spent by the writer in field work, a large part of which was devoted to investigations in caves and shelters in the Guadalupe Mountains of New Mexico, and in old lake beds near Clovis, New Mexico. Much time, how¬ever, of each year has also […]


The First Assyrian Level at Tell Billa

By: Charles Bache

Volume XXIV / Number 1

Plan of Stratum I-ASS It must be emphasized that this plan should be regarded only as a factual recording of what was found in the field. Dotted lines indicate restoration of walls based on evidence only. In most cases restoration was unnecessary. At this time we refrain from indicating hypothetical walls. Almost all gaps in […]
