Recent geoarchaeological research on the High Plains of northwestern Kansas has yielded new information regarding the location of buried landscapes that may harbor the material record of the earliest humans in the region. Soil-stratigraphic and geomorphic investigations in playas and in the valleys of small, intermittent streams (draws) located high in drainage networks indicate these geomorphic setting were zones of slow sedimentation and episodic soil development during the terminal Pleistocene and early Holocene. Deeply buried paleosols in the draws have yielded Clovis and possibly pre-Clovis cultural deposits, and a landscape/soil-stratigraphic model has been developed to systematically search for additional...
