Folsom Block

The “Folsom Block” or “Folsom Wedge” is a large jacketed block of sediment and bone from the Folsom period of the site. The wedge was salvaged from a collapsing exposure in the 1960’s. In the last few years the sample has been taken out of storage, and graduate students of ENMU have been excavating to determine what area of the site it was originally located, and to confirm it Folsom period date.
