"Arctic Clovis discovered on a high ridge overview above the American River south of Brevig Mission and Teller Alaska, Seward Peninsula. This was a 'surface' discovery and had not been exposed by erosion, but had existed at location since it's loss or deposit. The entire region is a major site of ancient hunters, shards of broken blades and chert fragments are common and the elevated area is probably over 500 feet in elevation taking in the entire region, valley and river."'note the abundance of lichen deposits on blade surface'
