Maybe the 1992 movie Brendan Fraser film Encino Man wasn’t too far from the mark?

Fossilized human feces and other evidence from a West Coast cave demonstrates the existence of a long-lost, 13,500-year-old American culture, scientists said Thursday.

The fossilized feces, known to researchers as a coprolite, from the Paisley Caves in Oregon has turned assumptions about the history of the Americas on its ear.

I wonder if it belonged to Kennewick Man or the indians who came in and killed him.

Apparently they hadn’t learned you don’t shi*t where you eat and sleep yet. ;-)

Apparently, the Paisley Caves in Oregon were the San Francisco of the neolithic...

It is NOT coprolite. It is crapolite.

HUM?
Interesting.
I love studying the Indians in the Santa Barbara area. There were protected by mountains, and the ocean.
No large prey.
There was abundant fresh water, small game, fish and native fruits and vegetable.
The weather was a lot warmer than today.
Ok, they were a lazy lazy bunch, but why not they had everything they needed at arms reach, Ok that’ why I like living there as well.
This is a fascinating story of the west coast.

How can they tell the difference between the thirteen thousand year old stuff and the stuff in San Francisco parks that's only a few weeks old?

Today's West Coast culture is no different from fossilized human feces. I'll bet they could learn a lot about this older group from observing San Francisco and Hollywood.

Let me guess, 2-3% of them were queer.
