An adaptation to the grasslands environment of the Late Pleistocene period in North America, especially evident in the Great Plains. Large game animals (megafauna) were hunted as the primary means of subsistence. Lanceolate projectile points, such as Clovis and Folsom, characterize the tradition. Approximate dates are from 12,500 bp to 8000 bp, with considerable local variation. See Table 9, page 552.
