Article on bitumen in Central America.
One day they will excavate one of these pits, like in

No, it's never to early to get into chocolate, ESPECIALLY when it's an "alcoholic beverage!" Have to hand it to the Olmec, they brought in the Ballgame, and what better to have while watching a Ballgame ... a nice beer, or one fermentd cacao beverage! Throw in a few taco's and what more could you as...

With this present "Low" Pressure Syetem standing over southern Florida
this week, I doubt that they will be doing much survey work until

http://www.latinamericanstudies.org/olmec-colossal-heads-1.htm Ok, here's something to ponder. The Olmec are known to have vanished around 800 B.C., which is still unbeknownced as to why.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aucilla_River This would be my best guess. Clovis material is known to prevail along and in the Aucilla River. Follow the Aucilla River south to the Pleistocene Coast line and there should be some heavy midden material out there! http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/vertpaleo/aucill...

Ya'll do realize that this time frame, around 8,000 B.C. is when the Holocene sea level is slowing down and reaching/establishing it's current sea level as we know it. That in it's self could be a factor of a lake breaching it's natural levee. That's the first thought that come to my mind. http://ww...
