Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Anderson discusses Clovis settlement patterns and early colonization of eastern North America. (He believes Early Paleoindians quickly settled in resource-rich areas that Anderson believes acted as staging areas from which people later spread out during Middle Paleoindian times after 10,800 BP.) There was a rapid emergence of regional subtraditions from 10,800 BP on as seen in distinct non-Clovis projectile points. The decreased mobility did not come from population growth, but from the initial population adopting settlement ranges that met 'cultural perceptions of appropriate size, range, spacing, and frequency of interaction, as well as ... biological needs, specifically the maintenance of viable mating networks and the avoidance of redundant land use...' (page 5). Anderson examines how these interactions between groups of people affected and changed group mobility strategies. He also proposes ways to identify these interactions archaeologically.
