Texan evidence of pre-Clovis North-Americans

Clovis (L) and Buttermilk (R) toolkits

Several news sites have announced today what is arguably the first consolidate archaeological evidence of human population of North America before the emblematic Clovis culture: the Buttermilk Creek culture of Texas, dated to c. 15,500 to 13,200 years ago.

This site adds to others more or less accepted ones from North and South America, clearly establishing that the colonization of the double continent happened at least several millennia before the emblematic Clovis culture, which is dated around 13,500 and 13,000 years ago.
