Folsom culture

The Folsom culture was a prehistoric (c. 8000 BC) American Indian culture named for Folsom, New Mexico. Stone arrow- or spearheads were discovered there in the 1920s in close association with the bones of an extinct breed of bison. Other tools, such as stone scrapers, bone needles, etc., have been found; and it is thought that the culture was a nomadic, hunting one.
