Summary
"This is the story of the Hogeye cache and its remarkable collection of Clovis artifacts - a time capsule from the past. A circuitous path brought thirteen of the original thirty-seven Clovis bifaces and points through many hands before reaching the attention of Michael Waters at Texas A & M University. He and some of his students followed the trail to the site where the bifaces had been discovered and located fifteen more bifaces. At the site of the original cache, they conducted excavations, studied the geology, and dated the geological layers to reconstruct how the cache was buried. Ultimately, fifty-two bifaces were recovered from the site. This book provides a well-illustrated, thoroughly analyzed description and discussion of the Hogeye Clovis cache, the projectile points and other artifacts from later occupations, and the geological context of the site, which has yielded evidence of multiple Paleoindian, Archaic, and Late Prehistoric occupations. The cache of tools and weapons at Hogeye, when combined with other sites, allows us to envision a snapshot of life at the end of the last Ice Age."--Back cover
