New possible Pre-Clovis Find in Argentina
Archaeoliogists working at the Arroyo Seco 2 site in Argentina have found tools, bones of extinct species and animal bones broken by tools, mammal bones that appear to have been transported dated at 14,064-13,068 years ago, placing the find in the Pre-Clovis era. Taken separately, each find could have been done without human involvement, but it is the confluence of all of the finds together which indicates a human occupation. The research has been published in the peer reviewed Plos One Journal.
(My note; the most important and totally proven Pre-Clovis site is at Monte Verde in Chile dated within the same time period. So far, the researchers have not found human DNA evidence at the site as has been found at Monte Verde).
