Expanding Paleo-Indian and Archaic Archaeology in the Chipola Valley, Northwest Florida, with GIS and Collectors’ Data
The Chipola River Valley in northwest Florida is an area of long occupation by pre-contact peoples, dating as far back as the Paleo-Indian and Archaic time periods (approximately 13,000 years B.P). While heavy archaeological research has been done in this region, I worked with a local collector to study over 700 projectile points found from the Chipola River. The collector has taken great care of these points and in many cases documented the GPS coordinates from where they were taken in the river. Using this information and GIS, I have been able to compare the known site information along the Chipola with this new data set to study settlement patterns within the Chipola River Valley.
