Re: X mt DNA in North America

Hi shawomet - I have found myself in similar situation for a long time now. You can not report for fear of plundering. Aside from that, a a general principle, if a people is pretty well wiped out, they will construct a grandious history for themselves. The more wiped out, the more grandous histor t...

Re: X mt DNA in North America

Much depends on the age of the cairn . In Europe clearance cairns can be thousands of years old and much degraded ,often little different from equally degraded cairns that have deposits below them . Field clearance is often found on top of erratics or large rocks as they are dead ground and it make...

Re: X mt DNA in North America

There is no shortage of Old World archaeologists and paleontologists who are in agreement with their New World colleagues about the problems with the site . Field clearance cairns look smuch the same as marker or burial cairns , excavation helps . There are always connections between megalith build...

Re: X mt DNA in North America

As you have never read my book you have no idea of the sources nor method I used for it. :evil: Your knowledge of impact scientists is similar: nil. I am pretty certain you never read my reporting either. Other people have though: Hancock: I’m working now on a big book on ancient America. Two main ...

Re: A new "landmark" book

I'd like to be fair to E.P. here. There are several rather exhaustive reviews at the link he provided, and it does sound like an excellent contribution to the subject.

Confusion in the Human Tree

Thanks to a skull found in China. http://www.newsweek.com/archaeology-skull-evolution-homo-sapiens-homo-erectus-human-710973 So certain characteristics that we associate with modern Homo sapiens may have actually developed in east Asia, and were only later carried to Africa. We’ll still need further...

Re: X mt DNA in North America

I have read the back and forth regarding the Solutrean Hypothesis for years now. I only knew one individual who took it to the extreme of "true believer", in the hypothesis, to a degree which might be compared to a religion I suppose. Otherwise, I find the suggestion untrue. I've seen good arguments...

Re: X mt DNA in North America

OK, the first link I posted above does indeed retain a photo of the broken bipoint made of French flint, or so it's claimed. It is blade #11 in comment #143935 at the following page: http://forum.arrowheads.com/index.php/forum/archaeology/83687-solutrean-style-point Even given its find circumstance ...

Re: X mt DNA in North America

Of the several bipoints from the eastern seaboard that have been touted as Solutrean in origin, the two that interested me the most were the two believed to be made of French flint. One had to be discounted because it was found beneath the chimney foundation of a colonial era cellar hole. I inquired...

Re: Skull Cult at Gobekli Tepe?

But I somehow can't grasp why you would archive your NEO/Impacter stuff here, on this board. It is almost not even tangentially relevant to the subject of archaeology. We have more or less agreed that impacts may have entered into the archaeological record through ancient folklore & oral histories....
