In a discovery that could rewrite the history of the Americas, archaeologists have found a number of stone tools dating back between 19,000 and 26,000 years, and bearing remarkable similarities to those made in Europe.
All of the ancient implements were discovered along the north-east coast of the USA.
Adding to the weight of evidence is fresh analysis of stone knife unearthed in the US in 1971 that revealed it was made of French flint.

Looks like the white guilt trip is finally over and there is no more eternal debt to be eternally paid out.
I just hope the ancestors of the current Indians did not wipe out the noble people who occupied the continent before them.
Did they find any made of iron or bronze? Maybe some teeth from a horse?
Wonder who will attempt to co-opt these people as their ancestors?
Were they white?
So the Pilgrims came here to reclaim their ancestors’ original homeland.
I guess we are really “more American” than the mexicans claim to be. In that stupid-racist-ass song that apparently is so popular with them now.
Of course they did. The evidence being that the "Indians" are now here, and the others are not. Such has been the course of history for all man's existence.
That’s obviously what happened.
Interesting book. I read it some time ago. Among other things I remember him describing America's Stonehenge.
I’m buildin’ me a casino.
Native Americans are squatters!
To some, a redundant description of Columbus, et al...
to the title, so what?
It is hard to say what happened to those first people, genetic testing is inconclusive so far, the very early French trappers were a horny bunch. The loss of complete populations among the Native Americans with the introduction of European epidemics was an apocalyptic in nature eliminating many of the people that could be tested. That old European stone age blood would of had no more resistance to the diseases then the other populations. They did identify an early negroid genetic strain in South America. The stories of light skinned Indians sparked lots of speculation amongst the early explorers but then again there were always other possible explanations. This is a story still to be told.
