Blades and Blade Technology . Part Two: The Keven Davis Site, a Clovis Blade Cache. The Keven Davis Cache Site and Its Setting. This book is concerned with Clovis blades, one of the lesser known of the blade technologies in the Americas and one that was practiced by hunters and gatherers near the beginning, rather than by state-level specialists near the end, of American prehistory. Part Three presents a comparative study of blades, discusses caching behavior, and considers the implications that lithic technology and caching behavior have for the interpretation of Clovis lifeways.

Clovis Blade Technology : A Comparative Study of the Keven Davis Cache, Texas. Around 11,000 years ago, a Paleoindian culture known to us as "Clovis" occupied much of North America. Considered to be among the continent's earliest human inhabitants, the Clovis peoples were probably nomadic hunters and gatherers whose remaining traces include camp sites and caches of goods stored for utilitarian or ritual purposes.

Around 11,000 years ago, a Paleoindian culture known to us as "Clovis" occupied much of North America. Considered to be among the continent's earliest human inhabitants, the Clovis peoples were probably nomadic hunters and gatherers whose remaining traces include camp sites and caches of goods stored for utilitarian or ritual purposes.

This book offers the first comprehensive study of a little-known aspect of Clovis culture—stone blade technology. Michael Collins introduces the topic with a close look at the nature of blades and the techniques of their manufacture, followed by a discussion of the full spectrum of Clovis lithic technology and how blade production relates to the production of other stone tools. He then provides a full report of the discovery and examination of fourteen blades found in 1988 in the Keven Davis Cache in Navarro County, Texas.

Collins also presents a comparative study of known and presumed Clovis blades from many sites, discusses the Clovis peoples' caching practices, and considers what lithic technology and caching behavior can add to our knowledge of Clovis lifeways. These findings will be important reading for both specialists and amateurs who are piecing together the puzzle of the peopling of the Americas, since the manufacture of blades is a trait that Clovis peoples shared with the Upper Paleolithic peoples in Europe and northern Asia.

This is an excellent book and resource for Clovis blade technology and there are very few books that even mention it. I sat down in one evening and had a blast perusing the topics in the book. I will use this book for many, many years.

Two thumbs up.

A must for those interested in this culture.

This book is extremely technical, devote professional archaeologists will have a great time reading this. The average person, will likely be bored by more than half of this book. I am glad it was written, very detailed, on cores, core flakes, dimensions of flakes, curve angles, strike angles. Great book for bedtime if you are an amateur, read at bedtime and you will wake up in the morning after a good nights sleep.

The text is supposed to document Clovis blade technology and provide expert comparative data. Dr. Collins does as he claims and does it well, perhaps not for bedtime reading!
