Re: Solutrean Connection

Solutrean on no Solutrean, if I understand it correctly artifact dating on the east coast is some thousands of years earlier than on the west coast, therefore, applying the normal approach one must assume that either there is a few thousand years of artifacts missing on the west coast or the two mig...

Re: Solutrean Connection

As a theory Min, yes, but to me where it fails is all the other places man moved to. Conflict usually has a cause, but even if conflict was the cause I still doubt that they took that action without knowing where they were going.

Re: Solutrean Connection

Following the animals? If we are referring to sea animals Min I'm not aware of any that migrate, I cannot believe that European populations at that time were sufficiently large that the supply of animals would have been reduced to a level that required the sea hunters to constantly move west. Equal...

Re: Solutrean Connection

If there were females there when they landed (i.e. X2s), when and where did they come from? :D From my understanding of the situation Cogs, there weren't, but I offered it on that understanding, thus it must have been deliberate. Taking family members with you not only states a solid intent to colo...

Re: Solutrean Connection

I get the hunting along the ice gentlemen but what I don't get is why keep going west? Hunters bring food baxk to base, they don't just keep on going! Also why hunt such large and dangerous animals as the Walrus if there are only a couple of boat loads of people? Hunting such animals would suggest t...

So we could get two for the price of one then! :lol:
As I pointed out elsewhere the gloom and doom merchants, here in after call Prophets, have been predicting the 'End' for about 6000 yrs. Not a good track record is it?

Re: Flight.

Some people go through life looking to be offended. I am one of those who is willing to oblige so don't go by me. :lol: Ditto here! I commented that if they didn't get their daily dose of being offended they would be offended, so actually I was doing them a favour. The particulr mod is himself a le...

Re: Solutrean Connection

I have seen him Min and I personally don't accept it. 3000 miles is a lot of 'lost!' If you take it with the other migrations that had preceded and followed it looks to me like pure venturesome or wanderlust. I think it unlikely that Europeans reached the Americas that early under sail, so we are lo...

Re: Solutrean Connection

It's made the news over here as well. I'm not surprised at the possiblity as we have discussed it before, but what I'd really like to understand is why people travelled so far?

Re: Flight.

One of the mods on another forum has told some of us off for baiting an extreme left winger Min so I'm bored. Do you remember the advert video I posted sometime ago featuring a family of Meercats? Well one of our lefties has decided it's racist 'cos they speak with a central European accent. Frankly...
