‘Fiercely Contested by Experts’
Humans in America 30,000 years ago, far earlier than thought
Below is a link to another in a long line of negated, over-written, forgotten, explained away and otherwise denied stories of pre-Columbian America. It does fascinate that the root for the denial of any legacy of North American colonization other than the Age of Sail exploration done by the European powers at the dawn of Modernity, seems to have as its root a simple desire on behalf of the Smithsonian Institute to be a font of unchanging and unchallenged knowledge. Before America even experienced its redefining Civil War, the new and grand Smithsonian Institute had determined that Truth concerning the population of America would be determined before the investigation was significantly undertaken and that all knowledge in the way of new findings and unearthed pasts must conform to the very flimsy and improbably truth established as the Bering Land Bridge Theory.
Despite the fact that Eskimos were cruising in kayaks off the Scottish coast in the late Middle Ages and Hanno had circumnavigated Africa in antiquity, modern paleo-anthropology is based largely on the assumption that hunting peoples are incapable of making and using boats unless they are non-Europeans. One would like to assign some conspiratorial bent to this constant negation of every discovery that does not support the notion of Asians walking from Siberia to America through glacier canyons some 13,000 years ago. But it seems that the complete failure of American historians to examine the actual American past, rests on nothing but parochial slavishness buttressed by a profound laziness of mind.
“The stone tools—unique in the Americas—revealed a "mature technology" which the authors speculate was brought in from elsewhere.”
“Until recently, the widely accepted storyline was that the first humans to set foot in the Americas crossed a land bridge from present-day Russia to Alaska some 13,500 years ago and moved south through a corridor between two massive ice sheets.”

Euro-Solutrean tools were found some years back near your stomping grounds and down into the South. Ancient Euro DNA has been found in native populations to boot.
