A Clovis-like Point from the Southern Sierra Nevada, California


In the Spring of 1983, a fluted Clovis-like projectile point of obsidian was discovered on the surface of site CA-KER-300, located at an elevation of 3,100 ft. (940 m.) in the southern Sierra Nevada northeast of Bakersfield, California (Fig. 1). The site consists of numerous loci including bedrock milling stations, midden areas, lithic concentrations, house pits, hearths, burials, and several rock shelters with pictographs, all distributed over an area of approximately 80 acres.
