Professors of Archaeology Charlotte Beck and Tom Jones have a co-authored an article that appears in the latest issue of American Antiquity (vol 75, no. 1). Their article, "Clovis and Western Stemmed: Population Migration and the Meeting of Two Technologies in the Intermountain West," evaluates whether terminal Pleistocene cultural traditions of the Great Basin and Columbia Plateau were derived from an early colonizing population known as Clovis or represent independent cultural developments.

Surveying radiocarbon and technological evidence, they conclude that the initial colonization of the intermountain region was probably by populations from the Pacific coastal area and not, as conventional wisdom holds, from the Great Plains.
