Some archeologists find a date in Mexico as early as 33,000 years ago approximately. According to this, in North America, human beings have reached an earlier age than archaeologists could even think.
A stone tool unearthed in Mexico’s cave reflects that human beings could live in this area as early as 33,000 years ago. A research report released on 22nd July stated these facts.
An evolutionary biologist at the University of Cambridge, Eske Willerslev, said- “A paper like this one is really stirring up the pot,” Source: Science News.
Further, he added- “will no doubt get a lot of arguments going.” Source: Science News.
For decades now, the archeologists thought that the first-ever residents of America were the Clovis who were big-game hunters renowned for their uniquely crafted spear points. The Clovis crossed the bridge of land, starting from Asia and ending in Alaska around 13,000 years.
In a recent report by archeologists, North America’s first-ever settlers came a thousand years before the rise of the Clovis culture in America. The research has been conducted and claimed by an archeologist from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Vance Holliday.
Holliday says- “If the new finds really are human tools, this would be the oldest evidence for a human-inhabited site anywhere in the Americas.” Source: Science News.
Continuing this discussion, an archeologist from the Autonomous University of Zacatecas in Mexico, Ciprian Ardelean, said- “This haul has a lot of small blades and small flakes that were used for cutting,” Source: Science News.
He, along with his team, dug into the squarish stone he suspects were considered the composite tools. These stones were assembled from tiny pieces of rock found in the bone shafts.
