Clovis Point - Displayed in the Blackwater Draw Museum

Clovis Point - Displayed in the Blackwater Draw Museum

The first day we stopped at the Blackwater Draw Museum just north of Portalis, NM. This museum is associated with the archeological dig that uncovered the prototype point associated with the Clovis people. These natives lived 13,000 years ago and hunted Mammoths. Bones of these mega fauna were found at this site also and are displayed at the museum. The museum is right on US 60 and we had passed it many times in previous years of traveling this route. It is not a busy museum and when we were there, had the place to ourselves. This is a shame since I thought it had very well laid out and instructive displays.
