    peopling of the americas

    Here are some claimed pre clovis sites.



    Everything lapa do boquete and earlier is before the assumed opening of the "ice free corridor"

    Anyone familiar with any of these sites and/or the associated stone working culture?

    What, no Meadocroft? I've been meaning to get out to Meadowcroft one of these days. I've lived around here all my life and never been there.

    oops
    it's only a partial list, focused on South America.

    Sounds like a fun day, visiting meadowcroft. Would you be able to recognize a solutrean bipoint?

    I made it out to Meadowcroft on Saturday. I'd highly recommend it if you are in the area. They let you go up and look into the rock shelter, and there is a video that explains the geology of the site and the archaeological findings. There is an archaeologist there to answer any questions you may have. I was not knowledgeable enough to ask many questions, but I did ask him about the flora and fauna associated with the older artifacts. From what I found on the internet, this seemed to be the sticking point for those who were skeptical of the pre-Clovis dates. They claimed that only modern species were found. The archaeologist said that wasn't true, and that appropriate flora and fauna fossils were found all the way down to the lowest levels.

    I don't know about the solutrean bipoint. The oldest projectile point was the Miller lanceolate, which I don't think is a solutrean bipoint.

    Makes me wonder how many of those sites have been reviewed by independent teams who also concluded there were pre-clovis sites by some measure of statistical significance.
