Clovis people: Narrow window of tool-making
Tools made by some of North America's earliest
 ?inhabitants were made only during a 300-year period
Texas A&M University, PhysOrg, October 23, 2020

Clovis range is ~13,050 to 12,750 cal yr B.P.
according to Figure 2 of below paper. Thus, this
interpretation has Clovis culture unaffected by
whatever happened at the Younger Dryas Boundary.
