In the late 19th and early 20th centuries Charles C. Abbott spent years studying the North American lithic industry. At the time many of his claims were rejected and dismissed by other archaeologists of the era. Today many of the same lithics documented in his publications can be found in collections gathered from pre Clovis sites where they are now accepted as flake tools etc. However it is unli

When dealing with ancient lithic technology we must put aside our modern concepts and perceptions. We must emerse ourselves in the world which existed in order to form a better understanding. Man rises to meet challenges, only by assessing those challenges can we gain insight into how needs were met. Although functionality and ergonomics of application were likely a constant, tools were created b

Doc, I appreciate you delving into this further. I also appreciate that you have the ability to think outside of the confines of the box. There have been some fairly major misconceptions in archaeology's past. We have all been subjected to the same teachings. Revisiting some of the past assumptions which have stalled progress is the only way to assure proper course correction. It has always b

Neil, The evidence does support your hypothesis. Virtually nothing is known of the culture that existed here prior to the event which ended the last ice age. I have a copy of a 2001 report regarding the issues with radio carbon dating of North American sites. In the report physicists explained that due to the event the effects of radiation spread outwardly from the northeast. They described the

What have you derived from all of it? I know one thing for certain, there is practically no one who likes an unsolved mystery... practically.

This is the same documentary. It's been a while and my memory may be a bit skewed I will admit. To be fair to Mike Waters I will say that I too have an issue with the bi-facing, but I cannot and would not make an assessment of the tools without holding them in my hands. I have studied lithics in depth and I have made a very close study of the oldest stuff which most archaeologists have never held

There was once a discussion regarding man's earliest presence in North America and long standing theories becoming laws. Wow, can you imagine? Of course this does apply to actual theoretical science where theories are arrived at within the conforms of scientific methodology. After two decades of chipping away at the Clovis first model one would think that minds would open up a bit. Of course even

Who was the fellow that was to meet with Michael Waters before the site was compromised? Who produced the video? I cannot find diddly regarding this documentary in my searches. Thanks.

Doc, I'm sorry to say that I cannot find anything about the documentary I was talking about. This kind of puzzles me because it was a full length very detailed video. The interviews included Mike Waters, Virginia Steen MacIntyre, and I don't recall the fellows name but he was the one who was supposed to meet with Waters for what was to be the final on site presentation and assessment. He made pr

BC, Currently the case can be made for both. Although most tends to conform to the principals I had discussed in another's unrelated post today. However, there are some that I have found to be more likely aesthetic. Especially those which I have found with an obvious abstract flair. There are even a few notable common motifs which can be found on the opposite side of the globe. As far as attempt

Glad I could at least articulate enough to spark your interest. As you may have already assessed, I am not an author and certainly not a writer. Unfortunately a good portion of my findings exist only in my head which is a pressure I am both unfamiliar as well as uncomfortable with. If not for individuals like yourself presenting me opportunity to share what I have learned I likely would have no o

It's quite the leap going from a less controversial 20,000BP to the pleistocene coalition. Just goes to show what can happen when you remove hierarchy approval from the equation...actual science for one. I know I have a draft of an intended correspondence to Virginia from a year or two ago. Here's the thing with the coalition as well as many archaeologists both professional and amateur I'm afraid

Exactly! There was a documentary about Hueyatlaco which had probably the most revealing statement about the true nature of North American Archaeology. While being interviewed, Mike Waters, Texas A&M (Mr.Academia), after the site was compromised and end of story, says "regardless of what the evidence said, I would never believe that man was here that long ago". How scientific is that

An article will appear in the June issue of Ancient American Magazine regarding the reality North American portable rock art. This is a collaboration between published author and archaeoastronomer Carl Lehrburger and myself. I have dealt with more than my fair share of archaeological PhD's on this subject, all of which adamantly deny such a thing exists. The best explanation of this came from a y

One may observe that tactics have changed somewhat as well over the years. This site was originally headed up by a young graduate student who it seems could not take the pressure of the controversy which built rapidly. She dropped out of sight and as far as I know was never heard from again. Of course the controversy had little to do with science so much as it did preconceived archaeological noti

What constitutes 'out there'? To the discipline of archaeology, this would be anything outside of the current accepted and hierarchy approved paradigm. Would this be correct, Doc? To investigate, look at or even discuss (without laughter) Paleolithic portable rock art would be 'out there' or rogue behavior. Not long ago any notion of pre-Clovis culture and man's presence earlier than Clovis would

I believe the story behind this point can be found on the incised stones. When I have studied what few pics they share of incised stone I find much correlation to the portable rock art which does not exist in North American Archaeology. Note the type and texture of incised stone with these geometrical crosshatch patterns on them. There is a reason for this which has to do with light, shading, our

Madeleine, I just wanted to thank you for the helpful reply and the confidence it instills just knowing that there are truly understanding and knowledgeable minds that take an interest beyond their own egos an arrogance.

I'll go ahead and weigh in with something that relates to my latest post regarding the lithic industry, as it applies to creating fire. I believe that the friction of a hand rotated staff was the first widely used method followed by the bow and staff likely much later. Although the current archaeological record does not reflect this, mine does. I have spent nearly two years of daily hands-on asse

Of my collaborators, each has a uniqueness of perception which I could not begin to explain. One, in particular, has demonstrated a perception of balance which I find most interesting. He himself cannot truly define what is sensed from an inanimate object which would lead to this type of experimentation. In fact, experimentation itself would likely lead one away from such findings. With a raised

Often it is recognition of the components of art that direct me. There are many components of artistic design that would escape those that are not educated in the visual arts, art history etc.. I am not well educated in these concepts but some elements are within the grasp of nearly anyone. Borders, textures, textures within borders, geometrical patterns, and lines are things that are noticeable

I actually have 3 videos regarding faces on stone. The first shows what I knew at that point and did not show what else is on many of these stones. These stones are abundant in many locales which my collaborators have demonstrated to me. Native Americans have knowledge of them as well but it's no surprise that this has never been shared. I believe that this information came to me by accident. One

cladking, Well said. Technology has come and gone before, I'm sure you know. With each cataclysmic planet killer, we begin anew with just the basics. Anyone who believes themselves superior of intellect to the ancient people we call primitive should test that theory in the wild. That's why I suspect their average intelligence was likely a bit higher. If they weren't intelligent, they simply didn

Steve, Thanks. The way I see it, the scientific method is solid reasoning which should apply to all sciences with no reason to be circumvented whatsoever. Hierarchies have no place in science, period. Quantum mechanics is a superb example of why we must explore all possibilities, otherwise, we're just pissing in the wind. I seem to remember the reason humanity deemed it important to learn about

If nearly three years of reaching out to the archaeological community only to be met with the equivalent of them placing their fingers in their ears while chanting la la la la la have taught me anything it would be that my persistence is nothing more than an effort in futility with regard to that arena. None have offered any scientific reasoning or anything of substance that would indicate anythi

I do try to get a lot of information out in a one-sided manner otherwise I'm just fielding a bunch of substanceless skepticism by those who couldn't possibly know anything about the subject without ever having placed their hands on it or having knowle

I have been an avocational archaeologist for nearly three years. This was not by choice as a hobby nor was it of any great interest to me before my curiosity was peaked by an accidental discovery. I do not hunt treasure nor personal glory. What I am concerned with is the public well of knowledge which is humanities. Yes, I'm one of those guys who's IQ is in the 1 or 2 percentile ranges.

There will come a time when it becomes more than apparent that the archaeological record in no way shape or form reflects the astronomical reality of the longevity of the lithic industry of man. At that time it will not be so easy to explain away that which limited understanding and limited patience has thus far managed to do. A good portion of the inevitable void that results may then be filled
