  ScienceDaily — A new and astonishing chapter has been added to North American prehistory in regards to the first hunters and their hunt for the now extinct giant mammoth-like creatures -- the mastodons. This new study concludes that the first-known hunters in North America can now be dated back at least 14,000 years.

The Associated Press reports that after being closed for three months after the largest wildfire in the state’s history, the prehistoric American Indian archaeological sites at the heart of Bandelier National Monument in Frijoles Canyon, New Mexico, have been reopened to visitors this past Monday.

The monument’s largest concentration of prehistoric cultural sites survived the initial fire, but were in danger again due to flooding that poured ash, sediment and charred debris into the canyon. Thankfully, the site remained intact and is now open again for the general public.

The timing is very opportune for the park, as fall is one of the busiest times of the year. The upcoming annual balloon fiesta in Albuquerque draws thousands of tourists to the state.

The canyons of Bandelier National Monument contain artifacts and evidence from 10,000 years of human history, starting with the prehistoric American Indians. The Las Conchas fire, which was sparked on June 26 by a tree falling onto a power line, damaged two-thirds of the monument. ”Flames raced across mesa tops and down canyons dotted with hundreds of archaeological sites,” the AP reported.

Monument employees went to work saving the prehistoric artifacts, pottery, and artwork by using old uniforms, blankets, and the American flag to wrap the pieces and transport them to safety.

The National Park Service’s site has a list of what’s open right now at Bandelier. It includes the trail at the Tsankawi Section, which contains numerous archaeological sites and petroglyphs, and Burnt Mesa Trail, with its expansive views of the gorgeous canyon.

  An arrowhead is the word used by archaeologists and enthusiasts alike to describe the artifact originally fastened to the end of an arrow shaft, whether made of stone, bone, metal or other material. Found as part of an archaeological site assemblage, in isolation on farm fields and in private collections and museums all over the world, an arrowhead is probably the best known artifact of the past—and a bit misunderstood.  
 

The term "arrowhead" is used by collectors and the general public to describe the tip of any projectile such as a spear or a dart point; but in archaeological science, an arrowhead only refers to the tip of an arrow that was shot by a bow. As a result, some archaeologists prefer to use the term 'arrowpoint' to be more explicit. The general term used by archaeologists for roughly triangular and pointy stone, bone or metal objects attached to any kind of a shaft is 'projectile point'.
