Re: A Study of Early North American Skulls

There were European rivalries no doubt, and there were the indigenous nations, but travelling over the North Atlantic just to freeze seems a wasted effort. And is it not true that some of these colonists were experienced in the religious wars. Yeah, again, I really think you have an exaggerated imp...

Re: A Study of Early North American Skulls

The English were well aware of Spain's reaction to the French establishing Ft. Caroline in 1564 and its resulting destruction and execution of all male inhabitants by Menendez. St Augustine was settled by the Spanish in 1565 and was well-garrisoned. English colonists stayed far north at the time; J...

Were there not parts of Alaska that were habitable - Beringeria?

Seems the archaeology is a bit erratic, no Lake Mungo
Sure. Enter the Beringian Standstill:

For the record, it's spelled Beringia.....

A Look at American Pseudoarchaeology

I have not read any of these essays as yet, and I prefer not to be too judgemental, as I am interested in alternative nterpretations of the human past. The most recent journal of the Society for American Archaeology(SAA), has devoted 27 pages to: “Pseudoarchaeology, Scholarship, and Popular Interest...

Re: Idaho, huh?

I've read articles & papers where 'Clovis Firsters' were working on Clovis sites... They stopped & dug no further after clearing the Clovis layers... instead of continuing until they cleared all the way to sterile layers... That, of course, was because there was 'nothing to find' below the Clovis l...

Current detailed chronologies show that human presence in the area can be traced back as far as ∼15 kyr [2,10] with a period of ∼3500 years of coexistence with extinct megafauna...

Re: climate-change-and-cahokia

Here's my two cents worth... Humankind, in its inexhaustible arrogance, has deemed that if this planet is rendered uninhabitable to such an extent that all humans will perish, then the planet will naturally be kaput... Yet... How many humongous extinction events has this planet experienced in its e...

Re: climate-change-and-cahokia

I thought man caused change was a fake when Al G first brought it up. In spite of our egos, we are just to small to affect something so big.

Re: Massive Impact Crater Found In Greenland

Thanks, Min! Great YouTube video at this link. There seems to be a very good chance that the Cape York iron meteorites, which were known to, and used to fashion iron tools by, Eskimos, are related to this crater.
