While driving around today, I noticed a landmark sign that instantly grabbed my attention:
10,000 years BC!!!
This stunned and floored me, we have artifacts that predate modern civilization by about 4,000 years here in the USA, and in North Carolina no
I stopped in the Badin Museum, and spoke to one of the volunteers there, I wanted to see this site.
Unfortunately, due to its being on private land, I wasnt going to be getting access , but I looked at their artifact exhibits, and had to snap a pic
This grooved axehead, if we go along with modern archaeologists, is older then the pyramids, but my feeling is the pyramids are far far older then
The volunteer and I talked for a little bit and he agrees, our civilization is much older then stated.
I remember reading that the native americans came over to the americas about 10,000 years ago, during the last ice age, crossing the Bearing Strait.
Artifacts found at this site included 3 fluted Clovis Points, which were first discovered in Clovis New Mexico
With this in mind, the volunteer thinks the indians might have migrated SOUTH to NORTH, not NORTH to SOUTH.
So how have they come to the Americas? Did they come over in boats?
Of course I have my own ideas, but thats for another discussion
You can find out more about the Hardaway site here:
That's awsome there is a marker for the site, there is a comparable site not to far from me in central cal. that has been all but forgotten.
The volunteer likely doesn't know how forward thinking he is, there is a growing body of evidence
that there was a very early entrance into the Americas, possibly by modern humans but maybe even earlier by an archaic homonid, such as h erectus, and
that they speciated into culturally modern humans in the Americas.
Evidence from linguistics, genetics and dentition is showing a clear delineation between amerinds and Africans, with those two populations the most
divergent and everybody else is in between.
Eventually the academics will get their heads out of their arses and look at the big picture, and realize that the notion of humans having only been
in NA for 13k years is hooey.
There are mammoth kill sites in Oklahoma and Mexico that are 50 k years old.
There is the calico hills site in the mojave desert that has tools over 100k and maybe even 200k old.
There is valsequillo in Mexico that has been dated to 40 to 200k years.
There is pendejo cave in MM that gave up 25k year old fingerprints in proto ceramics.
The site in cal I mentioned, the witt Clovis site, had human remains 15k years old and it has a pre Clovis/ western stemmed layer with chipped bone
This beauty was found at the witt site,
And these which are not Clovis also found at the site
Here is thread I did about the possible Clovis connection to local tribes here.
I also feel Clovis was more of a traded technology than a homogeneous culture, in its later phases.
