Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Hell Gap site has never been described in detail—until now. This long overdue volume is greatly welcomed by all who are interested in the earliest cultural compleses in the New World. Written primarily for professional archeologists and a host of researchers in related fields, but serious avocational archeologist interested in Paleoindian archeology also should find much to enjoy."—The Kansas Anthropologist


 



"Needed, dense, thorough collection that chronicles the life and content of this singulrly important archaeological site. The editors and authors are to be commended for digging into dusty bags and field records of the 1960s and bringing to light critical information on some of the earliest inhabitants of the continent."—Great Plains Research

A very detailed and scientific overlook of the work that was done in the last half of the 20th century at this extremely important archaeological site.
