The tools in the article "sound like plains" but in fact they sound like tools from any site. The description is generic- who didn't have scrapers, nutting stones and knives? There is mention of pottery and it is this which probably gave the clue since pottery types are distinctive and well known cultural markers, to a greater degree than even lithic styles.

The size of the grinding table was massive. Eastern natives had finer-tuned and smaller-scaled tools. That's all I meant - just from things I've seen and known about.
