Folsom: The Lindenmeier Site

Collected Papers of Frank H. H. Roberts, Jr. from The Smithsonian Institution 1934-1940

And Geologic Antiquity of the Lindenmeier Site in Colorado

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint 

Working in conjunction with Larry Conrad of Ancient Society Books, we have assembled Frank Roberts' papers concerning this landmark Folsom site.   To illustrate the geological view of this site we have also included in this compilation the Geologic Antiquity of the Lindenmeier Site in Colorado by Bryan and Ray.

Map of the Lindenmeir Site

     "Although Edwin M. Wilmsen utilized Frank H.H. Roberts' collections and notes to produce a comprehensive report on this all-important Folsom site, there is much in these original reports of the excavator which is not included in that work. These original reports have the flavor of the scholar who actually worked at the site and was making his observations in the early days of Paleo-Indian research.
     While the original papers are sometimes available in libraries and a full set could be acquired from the marketplace, if one were patient and prepared to expend the required funds, there is much to be said from the standpoint of time, money and personal satisfaction for having a comprehensive copy at one's fingertips.
     It is for the archaeological scholars who feel that the review of all relevant literature is essential to credible research and for the amateurs who are fascinated by, and want to have a better understanding of, these long-gone hunters that the original papers have been compiled into this reprint edition.
