Florida sinkhole reveals that we've been wrong about when the first Americans arrived - TomoNews

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — A collection of fossils and artifacts retrieved from a sinkhole in a river on Florida's Gulf Coast may provide some of the oldest evidence of human presence in North America. The Page-Ladson archaeological site, submerged 35 feet under Florida's Aucilla River, was the site of several digs in the 1980s and 1990s. A new team that included researchers from Florida State University and Texas A&M University decided to follow up on decades-old research between 2012 and 2014. After more than a hundred dives into the sinkhole, the team published their findings last week in the journal Science Advances. The researchers discovered mastodon bones, fossilized dung and stone tools in the sinkhole that provide compelling evidence that humans spread across North America far earlier than archaeologists previously thought. According to their research paper, the stone tools recovered from the sinkhole include a biface, a stone that's been manually sharpened on both ends. On a previous excavation at the site, archaeologists found an adult mastodon tusk that appeared to have human-made grooves along its surface, reported the Christian Science Monitor. Prehistoric humans called the Clovis culture were believed to have originally arrived in North America via a land bridge about 13,000 years ago — as mammoth bones and spearheads have revealed. However, according to the Guardian, some of the artifacts recently discovered within the Aucilla River date back to more than 14,550 years ago when the land bridge may not have existed. What these new discoveries suggest is that a land bridge from Siberia may not be the answer to how the first humans initially colonized North America. Moreover, evidence suggests that people were in North America before the Clovis. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

i've never understood why the americas are ignored or minimalized in ancient history. even when you have archaeological evidence to the contrary of this marginalization.

Well that money would go to big rims drugs and hookers.

Statistically the blacks were not the only race to get enslaved. The filipinos, cambodians, chinese, irish, and some very few native americans were enslaved too.
Totenkopf kang (2 years ago)
+dreandmegs not me the people that were here before me and I'm not even American I'm Czeck I just live here and since Americans stole the Indians land shouldn't they also pay African Americans money to because they fucking beat the fuck out of them that's a hell of a lot damn worse then getting your land stolen in fact lets just pay every race that America upset... No they should let the past be the past

What about the "white" giant race that lived in America as so described by numerous Native American tribes from North America all the way down to central/South America?
Free Speech (2 years ago)
im sure they were reffering to the vikings. they came from across the oceans and killed and pillidged what they wanted before leaven across the sea again.

Seems like native americans killed cute animals and cut them to pieces and wore their skin since the moment they arrived.

So just by examining a couple of archeological gibberish they came up to a fixed conclusion? LMFAO.
Smokey Rockwell (2 years ago)
They found artifacts & shit in the Grand Canyon back in the early 20th Century. And they weren't simple tools like spearheads either. Most likely, those discoveries didn't fit the mainstream narrative at the time...or this time for that matter. I would assume there were tons of amazing discoveries that have been swept up real quietly and put in the Smithsonian vaults.

+DeAndre Fuentes I know they were white. I did not imply any differently.
DeAndre Fuentes (2 years ago)
+Travis Johnson yes, those empires were white, even the Turkish one controlled by the Greeks. I believe you feel this way about black people is the effects of racism white supremacy systems put in place that dominant all social activity and industry.
Chicken Permission (2 years ago)
Well, no, the chattle slavery was introduced in modern times by Empires. What I was pointing out was that the "blacks" that people "pride" themselves in being these days are NOT who they are today. These "blacks" were superior, and probably a lot tougher, than the ones today, and evolutionarily more capable. It should instead be a staple point for all races to take pride in, saying, 'This was us", because it disgusts me to see anybody using them as a leverage.
DeAndre Fuentes (2 years ago)
+Jesus Bolanos +Travis Johnson​ Africans were in America 50000 years ago . Slave owners yes but not the barbaric chattel slavery

Like many things are lies. I just don't get why no one goes against mainstream science more readily. Those guys are real pricks. You should see Bill Nye the guy is a tool. Like evolution makes no sense. I am not a religious not but essentially evolution takes millions of years according to science but they science does not understand how human being can evolve in a matter of thousands of years. Basically a drop in the bucket compared to evolution. I wonder also if carbon dating is erroneous? But if it is not their are so many holes in the dating of various objects and artifacts. Things that are human made cannot be millions/billions of years old but are. Then you have maps of Antarctica under the ice before satellites and survey equipment could be used dating back to at least the 1500's but based on older source maps.

Connor Spencer (2 years ago)
Evolution does make sense you are just too much of a retard to understand it. Do you mean the gradual changes from within the homo genus Because those are pretty small biological jumps compared to the millions of years to change genus, you are comparing apples to oranges. People with half a brain don't go again science because science has evidence that you can see to back its claim up, you start going again science and you will be left in the past like every other civilisation. Carbon dating is only accurate to a certain time frame thanks to half life's, this has been known since its inception which is why they don't use it on object older that around 10000 years old, they use other types of radiometric dating.

budstattfgangsta and then mutated and evolved for different climates into white people, asians, everybody. Nobody says Africans weren't the first it's a scientific fact but nobodies gonna say an African born in Africa is more native American than a native American just because their ancestors were there in ancient history.

+Lonnie Dobbins III it's funny how whites always try to paint themselves as discovering someplace first when their own history shows that they were literally last to arrive everywhere.
Chicken Permission (2 years ago)
Oh, gotcha. Lost in translation.
MrZapparin (2 years ago)
+Travis Johnson I guess what he's saying is that you evolved, left and went North to a colder climate and adapted to that climate. You didn't evolve to a human-being, from whatever ancestors, in a cold climate but you did change in the colder climate and got adapted to it. Whatever the cause of that change was.
Chicken Permission (2 years ago)
+Lonnie Dobbins III Actually, we all come from warm climates. Unless you're specifying that blacks are a different race of human beings.
