Folsom

 

a Paleolithic archaeological culture (9000–8000 B.C.) widespread in the Great Plains (USA) along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains from southern Canada to the state of Texas. The first discoveries were made near the town of Folsom, N.M. Most sites were temporary camps set up by bison hunters during hunts. An exception is the Lindenmeier site in northeastern Colorado, evidently a permanent settlement. A cultural layer was discovered there, with hearths, bones of bison, camel, and other animals, and lance-shaped stone spear points, which were typical of the culture. Other finds at Lindenmeier included stone knives, scrapers, bone awls, and beads.
