If you have read the SHADOWS ON THE TRAIL Quadrilogy you know that the book series is about the Folsom People, who overlapped in time and space with the Goshen People on the northern plains. Clovis People preceded the Folsom People, but may have had time and space overlap with the Goshen People.
Although there has been considerable progress made in better understanding point type chronology and stratigraphic relationships between Clovis, Folsom, and Goshen, we still lack the evidence of the cultural or social relationships between these three groups. There are many examples of archaeological sites where the prehistoric inhabitants used a single projectile point type, providing evidence that projectile point type was one basis for defining a specific social group. When investigators find two or three projectile point types at the same site with similar or overlapping radiocarbon dates, it creates more questions than answers. Did the same social group use different projectile point type technology at the same site or did different social groups use the same site at similar time frames? We may never know the answer.
If you can't get out in the field to look for artifacts and visit our prehistoric past, do the next best thing - read the SHADOWS ON THE TRAIL Quadrilogy and get your prehistoric fix, quickly and effectively. Available at Amazon,com.
