THE SAN JON POINTS AND PALEOINDIAN TYPOLOGY

Abstract

The San Jon Paleoindian flaked lithic assemblage has more value as an example of problems in Paleoindian systematics than as a key to understanding Early Holocene culture history on the Southern Plains. There is no such thing as a San Jon point type of any classificatory significance. There is a Paleoindian lanceolate projectile point style represented at the San Jon site by one nearly complete tool, perhaps shaped or used as a knife as well as a projectile, and one shattered/reworked point remnant, both from questionable proveniences. They don't tell us much.
