In recent decades, with new site discoveries and expanding data sets, archaeologists have increasingly embraced landscape perspectives in researching Paleoindian peoples of northeastern North America. Reflecting this trend, the collected papers in this thematic issue report new analyses that alternately focus on (1) landscapes and settlement, or (2) toolstone sourcing and seasonal range mobility. These landscape approaches permit the authors to move from traditional site-centered studies to broader explorations of the lives of Paleoindians in northeastern North America.
