Title: The Mud Valley Site : A Late Palaeo-Indian Locality in Holmes County, Ohio

Abstract: The Mud Valley Site is a multi-component locality at which two distinct Late Palaeo- Indian components have been isolated on the basis of typological analysis of the projectile point assemblages. These components are dated on grounds of analogy with similar and related assemblages of known date from other parts of the Great Lakes region. An 'unfluted fluted' point component is dated from ca. 6,000 to 8,000 B.C., and a later lanceolate point component is dated within a range of 5,000 to 7,000 B.C. These two components are culturally and chronologically distinct, representing two distinct occupations at the site.
