ABSTRACT
The author recently analyzed a collection of artifacts that potentially represents a portion of a Late Paleoindian ceremonial artifact deposit at the New York State Museum. Collected sometime between 1930 and 1933 during a road building project in the town of 'Thurman, Warren Co., New York, three probable Late Paleoindian bifaces of exceptional and nearly identical workmanship now reside in the Museum's collections and documentation exists for several others. This paper provides a description of the artifacts and documents the circumstances and location of their recovery. An appraisal of the site's potential implications for regional Late Paleoindian scholarship and early ceremonialism are also briefly explored.
