Re: The Cerutti Mastodon Site: Archaeological or Paleontolog

Re: Back to 300,000 BC for Humanity

that's the huge question. Have currently submitted an application for a $50,000 grant to examine this question in depth from the Cocoa Beach (FL) City Council. I figure they are also interested.

Re: Back to 300,000 BC for Humanity

the party never stops. Nature mag strikes again! 300,000 years ago is the African Middle Stone Age = bifacing and blade-making tech; contemporaneous with the bifaces and blades in Valsequillo. The $300,000 Question: Did the 300k Moroccans know about boats back then? Specifically row boats? How long ...

Re: No bones needed: ancient DNA in soil!!!

when you read the article you will find that it is best preserved in caves in cold climates.
why do you have to cop an instant 'tude instead of spending a couple minutes reading the article?

Re: A 130,000-year-old arch site in southern California

but that means Mike doesn't believe in anvils or hammerstones. he has a big problem when he states there was no stone tools in his letter to the team. a very idiotic statement based on the fact there were no proper flakes at the site. this has driven most of the ex-Clovis guys off the edge ... whic...

Re: A 130,000-year-old arch site in southern California

Digging a profile, they found that the tusk cut through three vertical strata. ergo, when it was buried, it was sticking up vertically like a pole. What could do that in nature? That's why they called it an anomaly. The upright tusk always fascinated me since it seemed almost like it was stuck in t...

No bones needed: ancient DNA in soil!!!

Re: A 130,000-year-old arch site in southern California

Shawomet -- thanks for the reviews. Checked out the buzzfeed site and came across this person's complaint, an archaeologist who cited Haynes' complaint. I just responded to her.
