Fossil bones from fluvial deposits in the Yukon have been interpreted as evidence of an early human occupation. In this paper we are reporting similar materials from Late Pleistocene fluvial deposits in southwestern Nebraska which may be pre-Clovis in age. In spite of their morphological similarity to Old Crow specimens. we are reluctant to interpret them as evidence of a pre-Clovis occupation. Nevertheless, we are documenting these specimens for the information of other scientists who may be concerned with this problem.
