Surprising Similarities Between Western Stemmed Tradition and Clovis Paleoindian Lithic Technologies Revealed at the Cooper’s Ferry Site, Idaho

Archaeological excavations conducted at the Cooper’s Ferry site in Idaho’s lower Salmon River canyon have revealed a long record of human occupation spanning the period between about 13,200-9,000 calendar years ago.  So far, investigations at the site show that people used the site over and over again during this 4,200 year period, making and using tools to hunt, fish, process foods, and make a living along the Salmon River. 

In this presentation, we will discuss the kinds of evidence we find and what it tells us about what the past was like and how people lived at the Cooper’s Ferry site through time.
