Gault site research pushes back date of earliest North Americans

Archaeological evidence has increasingly called into question the idea of ‘Clovis First.’ Now, a study has dated a significant assemblage of stone artifacts to 16-20,000 years of age, pushing back the timeline of the first human inhabitants of North America before Clovis by at least 2,500 years.

We really need to become more global in our thinking about the history of humanity and much deeper in time.
We tend to highlight a small area of the Middle East during the time of a few thousand years are the most historical place and time in human history. But looking over the entire globe and over eons of times, this period is very unremarkable in human history.
