Geochronology and settlement disposition in the early Palaeo-Indian occupation of southern Ontario, Canada

Auteur :
JACKSON, L. J.

Description :
Examination of a sample of 150 fluted-point localities from southern Ontario, Canada in relation to datable features of Late Wisconsinan ice retreat discloses maximum possible ages for early Palaeo-Indian occupation and reveals selection of specific physiographic situations. Locality situation in regions dominated by proglacial sediments, on lake-edge features adjacent to strand-dissecting tributaries, within major river valleys, implies selectivity reflecting primary adaptation. Fluted-point associations with caribou and elk remains suggest that focal adaptation to cervids, comparable to Southwestern Folsom bison exploitation might underlie the homogeneous nature and distribution of early Palaeo-Indian localities throughout the northeast.
