Late Pleistocene butchered Bison antiquus from Ayer Pond, Orcas Island, U.S. Pacific Northwest

We have permission to post an exciting Article in Press concerning recent work on butchered Bison antiquus recovered in a wetland on the Northwest Coast of North America dating to approximately 12,000 BP–nearly 800 C14 years older than the main dates for North American Clovis assemblages.  Bone modifications on peat-bog preserved Bison antiquus provide evidence suggestive of Late Pleistocene large game hunting activities in this possible entrance area into the Americas.
