This may be just the tip of the iceberg...

In the course of an archaeological assessment prior to the widening of Route 3, east of Culpeper, re-searchers discovered a significant find.

A large cache of jasper shards was unearthed at the location and further exploration led to the discovery of a jasper mine, 12-feet below ground level, that was in use by Native Americans about 11,000 years ago.

Thats a neat find, it opens the possibility of tracking trade and travel in those times because archeologists could possibly trace other finds elsewhere back to this source.

Great news article!

Until a few decades ago, the existance of American Indians in the US before 10,000 years ago was very controversial. This is quite a significant find!
