Abstract and Keywords

Within smaller circles, the archaeology of Owens Valley is also well known and has received considerable attention. Relative to other regions in California and the Great Basin, much research, both academic and resource-management focused, has been undertaken. Indeed, several of the “type sites” for projectile point forms recognized across the west, forms that have been used to define the basic culture-historical sequence in many areas, are found in or adjacent to Owens Valley (e.g., Cottonwood, Rose Springs, Little Lake). As a result, prehistoric lifeways, and diachronic changes therein, are relatively well understood for this area.

Keywords: social organization, settlement patterns, Owens Valley, prehistoric lifeways, diachronic changes, culture-historical sequence
