Interesting. Thanks. I’m looking forward to reading more. I think what he’s saying makes sense. The black drink’s residue was found in cups far from the regions it was native to - Cahokia, Woodhenge, which is far from coastal south Florida.
Years ago, say 1925 or so, my uncle’s brother was plowing his field on the banks of the Clinch River in Union county Tennessee. I helped him to discover what it was worth and did some reading. It was a Celt, a wonderfully crafted stone ax. I learned that celts were found at other locations on the Clinch.
In May of 2012 we visited Cahokia where there is a great museum. there were several exhibits with celts. One was concerned with two celt factories...... places where tons of celts were discovered. Some were damaged and it was believed they were being sharpened. To my eye, they were identical to the one found on the Clinch River. They seemed to be the same bluegray stone
The conclusion was the folks on the Clinch in East Tennessee had something to trade for celts with the folks at Cahokia.
