CORVALLIS, Ore. Stone tools and other artifacts unearthed from an archaeological dig at the Coopers Ferry site in western Idaho suggest that people lived in the area 16,000 years ago, more than a thousand years earlier than scientists previously thought.
The artifacts would be considered among the earliest evidence of people in North America.
The findings, published today in Science, add weight to the hypothesis that initial human migration to the Americas followed a Pacific coastal route rather than through the opening of an inland ice-free corridor, said Loren Davis, a professor of anthropology at Oregon State University and the studys lead author.
The Coopers Ferry site is located along the Salmon River, which is a tributary of the larger Columbia River basin. Early peoples moving south along the Pacific coast would have encountered the Columbia River as the first place below the glaciers where they could easily walk and paddle in to North America, Davis said. Essentially, the Columbia River corridor was the first off-ramp of a Pacific coast migration route.
The timing and position of the Coopers Ferry site is consistent with and most easily explained as the result of an early Pacific coastal migration.
Coopers Ferry, located at the confluence of Rock Creek and the lower Salmon River, is known by the Nez Perce Tribe as an ancient village site named Nipéhe. Today the site is managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

I wonder how they brushed their teeth .
They didn’t live long enough to worry about that much. :)
They chewed on twigs from trees such as Azadirachta indica. This is still done in many regions of Asia and the Pacific.
Arriving 16K years ago was quite a feat; seeing as original Creation was only 6K to 10K years ago.
Thing is the dig has been going on for quite awhile already. The geological stratigraphy is already know and dated by geologists but they just kept digging deeper. :)
This is what needs to happen more often, keep digging, keep digging. Every time they do lo and behold there is more when it was considered to be impossible by the “official narrative”.
Did the artifacts have “Made in China” on them?
It’ quite significant. This would pre-date the Texas dig site.
It’s all about getting more money, to continue a useless project.
Actually... You should go read it. Looks like the origin may have been Japan. They are chasing this down now to be sure.
I drove a 10,000 ton freighter up the Columbia River, I think it was in 1966.
Entering the Columbia River has always been a dangerous game for ships.
"The Columbia River Bar is the worlds most dangerous entrance to a major commercial waterway."
Normally I would agree with most projects, But if this can prove the arrogant official narrative incorrect, then I am all for it and it’s a dig well worth investing in. Very few are, this one is... They need to keep digging deeper.
White Europeans were here first, and were genocided by Asiatics (so-called “native” Americans) who came later.
Note: this topic is from . Thanks Openurmind for the topic. I'm tired from the day, and didn't even check to see if we'd had a topic about this in the GGG list before this.
I did a search first friend, and got no results. So if so I tried first. It is a pretty new discovery in this older dig.
Thanks for the ping! :)
