Coast ping.

I'm confused. Chert is found in Arkansas. Chert is used to make tools. Fine. Now they've found an outcropping of Chert dozens of feet below the surface of the ocean, off the coast of North Carolina --

And this tells us how people came to North Carolina?

What am I missing?

These guys might be about to make fools of themselves. Chert was used for ballast. It was also used to pave roads. For all they know, it could have washed out to sea in a nor’easter back during the depression, or was dumped by a ship during the Civil War.
