Abstract:

The Eagle Hill site 16SA50, is located in a rolling upland area of western Louisiana known as Peason Ridge. Because of its location in a saddle, the locale accumulated colluvial sediments during certain intervals of the late Quaternary in addition, it served as a habitation area for prehistoric groups. The early Holocene levels 10,0007,000 BP began with a Folsom-related occupation and ended with an Early Archaic technology. Analysis of lithic wear patterns, tool morphology, and fire-related attributes clearly defined activity areas. Similar success was achieved with the late Holocene AD 600 - present ceramic levels.
