9,900-yr-old skeleton found in submerged cave

Recommended Posts

Still Waters
Quote

A 10,000-year-old skeleton discovered in Mexico has challenged the “traditional” theory that humans first entered the American continents as a single population, scientists say.

An analysis of the remains, found in an underwater cave known as Chan Hol near the city of Tulum, suggests there may have been multiple groups of early American settlers arriving “from different geographical points of origin”.

Inhabitants of the bluefish caves of the Yukon predated this by 14,000 years

Some animal bones have been found there; some with cut marks.  Also some tools.  No human remains to date though.  Am I behind the times?

The "Beringia standstill" hypothesis agrees with the date, so it's possible.

A lot of us Smithsonian token Indians think much evidence was lost in the catastrophic glacial flooding and many genetic lineages were lost during the genocide so 25,000 years ago is a viable date for settlement of North America is a good possibility.

No remains yet Uncle. I hope if something is found the Dine will allow a study.

The authors add: "The Tulúm skeletons indicate that either more than one group of people reached the American continent first, or that there was enough time for a small group of early settlers who lived isolated on the Yucatán peninsula to develop a different skull morphology. The early settlement history of America thus seems to be more complex and, moreover, to have occurred at an earlier time than previously assumed."

 

I have been gone awhile. I figure I would ease into the forums again. 

 

What settlement ideology do you agree with? Why?

Things are going well. Starting a new business. I mean, got to do something while home, LOL. Good to see you. Realised I have been a member here for 10 years. It goes quick. School for me is rounding to an end. It kept taking me more and more away from my family, and becoming an engineer would take me even further, so I have decided to start a family run business instead and save the debt for that instead ha ha ha. Still doing well in school, finished all the calculus and physics they offered. I enjoyed it... learned alot... found my family much more enjoyable though. It is transfer time and I am transferring home :)

That 12,000 year benchmark date persists, even though it's been pretty much shot out of the water. The vast coastal plains first encountered on entry to the New World, probably by boat, are long submerged. Old notions die hard.

Hi Aus

Great, glad to hear that you have found a way to have time with family and balance with work. Best wishes for your family and business.

I am going to give you these links for now but have a couple of others somewhere that I will find and link as well as this is an interesting subject.
