The Scottsbluff technological complex was named after the Scottsbluff bison kill site in northwest Nebraska. Calibrated radiocarbon dates for the Scottsbluff technological complex are 9,500-10,500 years before present (BP). A radiocarbon date from the Scottsbluff occupation level at the Big Eddy site in southwestern Missouri is 9,525+/-65 years before present.
