New evidence suggests Stone Age hunters from Europe discovered America
New archaeological evidence suggests that America was first discovered by Stone Age people from Europe – 10,000 years before the Siberian-originating ancestors of the American Indians set foot in the New World.
A remarkable series of several dozen European-style stone tools, dating back between 19,000 and 26,000 years, have been discovered at six locations along the US east coast.

yes, European cave men discovered something that was already there, and had people already living there.

How the blinking heck did they get there?? Land bridge between Russia and America?
"It shows that about 11,000 years ago, there was already a very diverse manifestation of rock art in South America, so man probably arrived in the Americas much earlier than normally is accepted," explained Walter Alves Neves, the archaeologist and biological anthropologist leading the team.
More evidence that archaeology hides new discoveries and hides behind the status quo...

'Discovered' is quite an emotive word in this context, granted, probably 'travelled to' would have been better - it's pretty amazing anyway - since they would have had to travel westwards, by boat, across the Atlantic.
Decisive evidence would have to come from an independent arena. Douglas Wallace studies mitochondrial DNA, part of the human chromosomes that is passed unchanged from mother to daughter. It only varies when mistakes occur in the replication of the genetic code. Conveniently for Wallace's work (piecing together a global history of migration of native peoples) these mistakes crop up at a quite regular rate. The technique has allowed Wallace to map the geographical ancestry of all the Native American peoples back to Siberia and northeast Asia.
The route of the Clovis hypothesis was right. The date, however, was wrong - out by up to 20,000 years. Wallace's migration history showed waves of incomers. The Clovis people were clearly not the first humans to set foot across North America.
"DNA lineage predominantly found in Europe got to the Great Lakes, 14,000 to 15,000 years ago"
Douglas Wallace, Emory University
Douglas Wallace's DNA history bore fruit once more. In the DNA profile of the Ichigua Native American tribe he identified a lineage that was clearly European in origin, too old to be due to genetic mixing since Columbus' discovery of the New World. Instead it dated to Solutrean times. Wallace's genetic timelines show the Ice Age prompted a number of migrations from Europe to America. It looks highly likely that the Solutreans were one.
Is it possible there is more to the cross than we previously understood?
What did the ancients try to convey with its image ?
Did the cross design ancient buildings, shape philosophy and invent geometry?
Was the cross the secret instrument of the geometer and the power of rulers?
Does this ancient spherical computer reveal the true nature of Time itself?
What could this revelation mean to you?
Why is there a wheel on a Celtic cross?
The Wheel on the Cross was obviously designed to spin, Why?
Did the wheel measure the spin of the earth ?
Do the interweaving serpentine sine waves represent the cycles of order and chaos?
Do the four arms represent the four seasons ?
Did Neolithic and even Palaeolithic sea faring hunter gatherers invent zodiacs (Signs)
so that they could navigate by the stars?
Did ancient people use natures astro-logical mathematics to design sacred buildings ?
Does the cross represent "As above so below"?

Whats known as the 'clovis' people emigrated from the basque area of Europe to North america, as the poster above typed, using large animal skin 'kayak' type boats, this stuff is well know to acheologists.(spell checker on the fritz again)
