Abstract

A consideration of the technological features of early New World Paleo-Indian lithic industries suggests that these industries may be viewed as the end-point of an expansion of generalized Upper Paleolithic cultures across the arctic environment of Northern Asia, which reached Beringia about 12,500 B.C. The similarities between Northern Spanish Solutrean and early Paleo-Indian industries may be the result of similar temperate zone adaptations of basically similar arctic-oriented antecedent industries. The technological and typological relationships of New and Old World lithic materials are likely to remain vague until standardized techniques of observation can be applied in both areas.
