11,000-Year-Old Seafaring Indian Sites Found

4 posts in this topic

Just offshore from the chock-a-block development of Southern California, archaeologists have discovered some of the oldest sites of human occupation on the Pacific Coast.

On Santa Rosa Island, one of the Channel Islands just 65 kilometers from Santa Barbara, nearly 20 sites have been found that reveal signs of prehistoric human activity, from massive middens of abalone shells to distinctive stone points and tool-making debris.

Pity there isn't much 'evidence' found of the ancient Eskimos or Inuit culture ~ bet they traveled much and far greater back in time and history too ~

there would be just as much evidence for inuits as any other native/aboriginal cultures. it either has not been found, has been found and isnt that old, or doesnt exist.

I would think it might be harder to find though in Ice and snow and permafrost? Hard to find remains of an igloo too ?

.. also.. i don't think they used fire much.. most meat was eaten raw or freeze dried? .. so,, no "hearths" all over the place.

..also... most tools were made from bone , rather than stone... bones disappear easier.
