Clovis age and Archaic age wells were found here, indicating climate fluctuations and variable water table in one of the most stable spring-fed lakes of the past, providing a much needed water source in times of drought. Important Issues : Important Issues During the early excavation of the site, it was done by armature archaeologists and as a result there are significant gaps in the sites records One of the main issues for the Blackwater Draw Site and museum is the seasonal spikes in its out reach program.
During the winter months the site is closed, and the museum experiences a low number of supporters and visitors. The studies will provide much-needed information about campsites and other types of activities that occurred in this early time period. In addition, research of the upper levels may yet define more recent cultures and the sequence of events that occurred in the past.

The stratigraphic records providing records far beyond the Clovis age people, solidifying how the climate and resources available impacted the culture and characterized the life of the Paleo-Indian.
