Throughout the Paleo and Archaic time periods, men forged clever yet primitive weapons and tools. Archaeologists are able to identify which time period weapons were made in by the spear points they found. Various spear point styles were used to break down the Paleo time period into sub-periods. The earliest known people of the Paleo period are often identified by their points, the Clovis points. The Clovis points were lance shaped and with somewhat parallel side and curved bases.
Native Americans were mainly sedentary and did not relocate often, they also hunted rather than domesticated. They had to hunt for their meat, so they were often exposed to the dangers and difficulties of hunting. This generated a certain amount of respect for wildlife and nature. Native Americans also had to cultivate land by hand due to the lack of large livestock. Since this process was time consuming, there was not much specialization of labor.
Those are the two methods of hog management but there are different variations of these methods. But since hogs learn about these and avoid them it makes it hard to remove them and in Texas it is estimated that 700 hogs need to be removed weekly. Trapping hogs is one very effective technique of removing hogs because some traps can catch multiple hogs at one time. But trapping requires planning, checking, and baiting traps frequently. Some common hog traps are box traps, coral traps, and leg snares.
In these eras, some similarities are their social and cultural makeup. Each of these eras communities and towns were mainly made up of kin. These communities didn’t involve much foreign migration from far lands because of lack of transportation, so it normally was just extended families moving between communities of more of their families. and The communities around also had some family, because of trading and small scale migration. A cultural aspect these eras share is that there was no mass production at these times.
The Sinagua performed ceremonies and rituals in a lot of different arrangements like rectangular community rooms, and kivas. Some of the most important ceremonies they performed were communal hunting rituals. The ceremonies were led mostly by men, but compellingly they worshiped a goddess named Tihkuyiwugti. She was the mother of most of the animal they hunted like mountain sheep, bear, and deer. Also, fascinatingly, the witchdoctors would look for omens and try and look into the future by eating mushrooms to produce hallucinations.
The Mayans used spears and traps to hunt animals like wild boar and deer. These traps were made from nets of long vines and leaves that would lead an animal to where the hunter wanted it to go. Their inventions were very cleaver; they laid out “trip wire” that would trigger a much larger spear like object that would kill a large animal instantly.
The Gabrielino made their own baskets, They used reed to make wick baskets. They placed fooe and special items in the baskets. The Gbrielino Indians used many tools and weapons. Some of those items are canoes and spherere, made out of rock. They made made their canoes out of dug out tree.They used rocks to crush nuts and spheres to kill their prey in the ocean and in
The weather played large role with the increasing temperatures at the end of the last great ice age. The end of the last great ice impacted on the vegetation & animals, this may have force a change from Mesolithic hunter-gathers to Neolithic agriculture. The large amount of vegetation, cereals and animals sheep's & goats, which were later on cattle's and than domesticated animals, as well as the relaxed life style. Technology had evolved over the years due to the change of lifestyle. heavier tools became more important than the light stone blades of the
After they cleaned the meat out I’m thinking they carved the bones and made them into some sort of tools. Archeologist found chips at the scene which I’m guessing was just left over from a snack but we will never know. All of these artifacts were found in one big circle my thought is, it was found in a big circle because that is where their camp was, that was how they set it up.
