Lubbock Lake Landmark is a unique archaeological site. It is the only one in North America that has a complete record of nearly 12,000 years of human history located in one place, and uncovered by scientists.

Geological study provides the framework for the Landmark's archaeological investigations. Studying the stratagraphic layers of sediments and soils gives us information about the environment, and helps us to date artifacts.
