Editorial Reviews


I recommend strongly purchasing this book, thinking it indispensable in the library of any researcher interested in Early Paleoindians and lithic technology. The richness of the Crowfield monograph is based on the complexity of the investigation, the contribution of multiple lines of evidence to support the interpretations, as well as the candid approach of the authors who want to understand but recognize the difficulty of making stones talk. --Claude Chapdelaine, Département d anthropologie, Université de Montréal, Recherches Amerindiennes au Quebec, XLI, No. 1, 2011

Although the authors are refreshingly honest about the ambiguities in what we can know about the Crowfield material, they make a strong case that this material opens at least a small window into Paleoindian religious practice, a domain of early lives in the New World about which we know virtually nothing. . . . The Crowfield volume sets a new standard for Paleoindian lithic analysis, whether that analysis focuses on a cache or not, and it sets that standard very high. --Douglas B. Bamforth, Ontario Archaeology, Vol. 93

Brian Deller and Christopher Ellis have put together one of the best site reports I have ever read. I knew of this "Crowfield" site many years ago but knew nothing about it. Reading of their work at this site, and of the materials found, the years spent refitting the burned artifacts, I now know why the information was so long being understood. There is no doubt that they are correct when they call this a "Unique" Paleoindian site. The information gleaned from the site has given us a teasing look into another part of the puzzle. I was especially interested in how the Crowfield tool kit was a match for a Folsom-man tool kit.
The book is well written, with black and white photography, and line-drawings of artifacts. The information reports on some rarely seen types and the importance of the site will, I suspect, remain unappreciated till another one is uncovered and reported on, its that unique.
