The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., has found no reason to dispute the authenticity of an unprecedented archaeological discovery that might help confirm a human presence in Florida up to 13,000 years ago.
In early 2009, fossil collector James Kennedy cleaned off an old bone he found two years earlier and noticed some lines on it — lines that turned out to be a clear etching of a walking mammoth with tusks.
The bone came from an area north of Vero Beach, but the exact location hasn
UF scientists estimate that the engraving could be traced back to the last ice age thousands of years before the construction of Stonehenge, the circle of large stone blocks of the famous Neolithic period in England.
The engraving carved in mammoth bone shows a walk and "is the oldest and the only known example of art in the Ice Age that draws a Proboscidea (animal horn) in the Americas," he said in a statement Smithsonian.
i know a family of palaeontologists, and i was told gravestones with very accurate dinosaur depictions were found, and suppressed, because it contradicts evolutionary theory.
The Smithsonian declared it HERESY that other ancient civilizations may have visited the shores of North and South America during the many millennia before Columbus. It had been alleged that the Smithsonian at one time had actually taken a barge full of unusual artifacts out into the Atlantic and dumped them in the ocean.

carbon dating is accurate in theory, but in practice, it is unknown. you can date back to around 55,000 years with it, but it assumes that there was always a constant level of carbon-14 in the atmosphere. any massive destruction of plant life would throw its accuracy off, making things appear much older.
