Another waste of tax dollars. I may be going out on a limb here, but maybe, just maybe the Native Americans put one foot in front of the other and walked to new places. Well, that or it was aliens.
Oh well...It's really all about Grant Money isn't it !!
They really need to go back and study the old maps.
my goodness - ancient people in North America moved and migrated around North America, taking their stuff with them (moving their stuff from where they acquired it), and they also traded over very long distances - gee, imagine that!!!
i don’t understand how any of the findings are surprising
from my understanding of ancient people in North America the findings are totally predictable
Native tribes formed alliamces and confederacies that were pretty far flung. Wars, too. Some were migratory to an extent, with war and alliances playing a role in that. Whole regions were apparently abandoned in some parts of North America, with the earliest European settlers finding deserted villages.
Why is it so difficult to imagine that there was equally far flung trade? They’d travel fifty miles or more for the right stone for arrowheads and spearheads within their own territory.
