Archaeologists recognize sites dating to each subperiod primarily by the presence of distinctive projectile points.
Global temperature was rising rapidly during the interval from 15,000 to 11,000 years ago, albeit with occasional sharp reverses, and the great continental ice sheets were retreating, causing the coastline to move rapidly inland. The Early Paleoindian is characterized by Clovis and related projectile point forms.
C., sea level was within a few meters of its present elevation, and climate and biota approached modern conditions. Most likely, Paleoindians moved over large areas, on foot or by water, in small bands of twenty-five to fifty people.
Their group ranges centered on stone quarries, shoals, or other particularly desirable environmental features.
Several hundred Paleoindian points are currently known from the state, although the number is tiny compared with the tens of thousands of later points that have been found.

These forms have relatively large lanceolate (lance-shaped) points with nearly parallel sides, slightly concave bases, and single or multiple basal flake scars, or flutes, that rarely extend more than a third of the way up the body.
