Reconstructing Paleoindian Workspaces

Dr. Joseph A.M. Gingerich, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Ohio University Research Associate, Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History National Geographic Explorer

This will present a detailed spatial analysis of the 13,000 year old Shawnee-Minisink site in northeastern Pennsylvania. Here, I pay special attention to artifact metrics, microdebitage, and lithic refits to help classify activity areas. Detailed refitting and spatial analyses will offer new models for reconstructing activities at other mobile hunter-gatherer sites. Results of this study also reveal gender specific and domestic workspaces that provide new information on Paleoindian lifeways in the Americas.
