This chapter deals with acquiring food, specifically the animal portion of the diet, in the Paleoindian Period. The authors discuss the historical roots of the sub-field in detail. Locations noted in the chapter include Florida’s Alexon Bison site, the Page-Ladson sites, and Alabama’s Dust Cave. For instance, the zooarchaeological reanalysis of the Jefferson’s ground sloth (Ohio), excavated at the same time as the Old Vero site (Florida), shows clear evidence of butchering.
