So how do you explain living things that are that old.
Things such as the redwoods of california, or the 10,000 year old aspen groves in colorado that are all clones of the original tree.
Or the giant ant colony in southern France, where all the ants for a 200 kilometer radius are all related, its thought to be tens of thousands of years old.
Or even better what about the places in the world, where people lived continuously for any given 3700 year interval, like Huaca Prieata.

I know this much.
The Earth is a grinder.
Anything, over some odd amount of years, is gonna get grinded up and forgotten.
If we want to find the big ones, I'd say search along the coastal areas, perhaps deeper ocean and keep digging and digging.
New discoveries will continue to rewrite the current views and perceptions, bringing upon new paradigms.

Multiple races, multiple species, lost civilizations, all wiped out time and time again with Earth shattering, extinction level events, and all of our archaeologists trying to put everyone together on a single timeline.
This is what happens when you try and do that. Now, we'll wait for some off the wall theory that doesn't make any sense whatsoever to explain it.
