Archaeologists: America was discovered in the stone age

New archaeological discoveries suggest that America was first opened back in the stone age, 10 thousand years before the arrival of the Siberian ancestors of the American Indians. To such conclusion scientists came after a series of finds on the East coast of the US, reports The Independent.

At six locations were found stone artifacts of European origin, Dating back 19 to 26 thousand years, three of them are on the Peninsula Delmarva. Maryland was found by the archaeologist Dr Darrin Lowery of the University of Delaware, two more were found in Pennsylvania and Virginia, and the latter was a simple fisherman found 100 kilometers off the coast of Virginia on the ocean floor, which in prehistoric times was dry land.

The similarity between the artifacts found in America and in Europe, it was noted a long time ago. However, before the age of such finds was made 15 thousand years and belonged to the period when the Europeans had not created such products. That is why most archaeologists denied the possibility of communication between the two cultures.

Recently found stone tools belong to the same period as the European, and are in fact identical copies. What’s more, chemical analysis carried out last year on a stone knife found in Virginia in 1971, showed that he was sdelans of flint French origin.

After analyzing all the evidence, Professor Dennis Stanford from the Smithsonian Institute (USA) and Professor Bruce Bradley from Exeter University (UK) suggested that

stone age people during the ice age migrated from Eastern Europe to North America,

moving on the ice or in boats along the frozen North Atlantic ocean.

Stanford and Bradley have long argued that Stone age people were able to overcome almost 2,500 kilometers across the sea ice of the Atlantic, however, still evidence of this were relatively few.

Now, based on recent discoveries, archaeologists have turned to previously unexplored States – Tennessee, Maryland and even Texas. According to their calculations, these areas should be detected new evidence of the stone age, and

the findings are more helpful to study the history of settlement of mankind.

We will remind, earlier it was supposed that the first in America, settled the tribes of Siberia, who became the ancestors of the Indians. This is the conclusion of scientists in 2007 after large-scale genetic studies. Scientists believed that the territory of modern Altai region about 14 thousand years ago, migrating through Central and Eastern Siberia and overcome freezing in winter, the Bering Strait, the ancestors of the current indigenous people in the US and Canada first came to Alaska, and after over the centuries have migrated to warmer and fertile region of North America.
