those furnance holes and vents look similar to kiva vents but can't find any measurements on the net. also could be kilns for firing pottery, that would explain iron oxide traces. most tribes used iron oxide for painting also, was much more durable than cherry juice. you knap wackers probaly didn't check for pottery shards. do you have a timeline yet? the vikings were smelting on the east coast very early also, but think it was speculation can't find any plans on their sites. was a welder for 20 yrs. this is the kind of stuff i like.
sorry min for the tirade but where do we think these people lived? 100 miilon souls roamin around i'm sure they were takin the prime spots and not living in the deserts and swamps. we put them there. it sure would be nice not to have drive so far to do my gamblin. the lakotas here are trying to claim dia as theirs so they can build a casino. we laugh now but what if? it's still in court so we may have an international native american gambling casino airport one day. personally i'd love it as my farm is within viewing distancw of dia. btw i got my cast off yesterday, might have both writin' hands back soon.

They got buttons on 'em now, Bob. Maybe he sprained it carrying all that money he won.

If the prevailing theory is correct, wouldn't "pre-clovis" points be very similar to points found in Siberia or Alaska?
Of course, if the prevailing theory is incorrect there would be ample time for a "pre-clovis" culture to develop.

His cladogenetic proposal makes sense to me.
Well, Charlie, you finally did it. You're sending me scrambling for a dictionary to look up "cladogenetic."
Posted: Thu Jul 20, 2006 11:09 am
Min, will I do. According to Encyclopeadia Brittania's Dictionary, cladogenetic is the adjective of cladogenesis. Meaning: evolutionary change characterized by treelike branching of taxa — compare anagenesis
But I bet you still know more than I do.
