Isequilla’s Pit

“Isequilla’s Pit” is an area of Blackwater Draw Locality #1, that was partially excavated by Alberto Isequilla from 1997-1969. He abruptly abandoned his fieldwork, and left 10 meter long profile that documents environmental changes up to approximately 13,500 years ago. The area was re-opened for excavation in 2009 by ENMU, and two summer field schools have been held there. Two overlaying bison bone beds have been found dating to the late Pleistocene.
