Late Prehistoric Bison Procurement in Southeastern New Mexico: The 1978 Season at the Garnsey Site (LA-18399)

John D. Speth and William J. Parry

The Garnsey site is a late prehistoric-protohistoric bison kill site in southeastern New Mexico. During the 1978 excavation, the crew clarified the stratigraphy and chronology of the site and increased the number of bison remains. In this data-rich monograph, the authors present the results of their fieldwork and analyze their findings. In addition to bison remains, researchers found lithics, ceramics, and fire-cracked rock.

The Garnsey bison kill site is near the Garnsey Spring campsite. See also The Garnsey Spring Campsite: Late Prehistoric Occupation in Southeastern New Mexico (Technical Report 15) and
