Notes: Copy 1 from the library of the late archaeologist Robert Lister, his markings.  Haury and Julian Hayden first excavated Ventana Cave in the early 1940s, and based on excavations posited that the cave was dated somewhere between Folsom and Clovis.  Studies done in the early 1990s, using different technology, disproved that point and stated the cave is post-Clovis.
