Lubbock Lake National and State Archeological Landmark is a 300-acre preserve on the northern outskirts of Lubbock, Texas. It is one of the largest known hunter-gatherer sites in North America, and evidence there points to its use as a hunting and camping ground from as long as 11,500 years ago. In text and pictures this book tells what scientists have learned from this 'ancient watering hole'. Public involvement and research have been intertwined at Lubbock Lake Landmark since it was discovered in 1936. Research efforts and community programs continue there through the work of the Museum of Texas Tech University. This educational book, oriented towards family activities at the landmark, can be used and enjoyed by both children and their parents. It is also suitable for classroom use and complements program materials available for teachers. Eileen Johnson, author of the book's text, is director of the Lubbock Lake Landmark and Curator of Anthropology for the Museum of Texas Tech University. Also from the Museum staff, Patricia D. Martin edited the text for educational content, and Jean E. Cokendolpher and David K. Dean provided the book's illustrations.
