In January of this year finds at Bluefish Cave in Northwestern Canada were announced that turned everything we thought we knew about humans in the Americas upside down. We thought that the Clovis Culture (13 kya) was the earliest human culture to arrive in the Americas but the finds at Bluefish Cave made that not so when the fossil remains at Bluefish Cave were dated to 24 kya.
The evidence at Bluefish Cave was actually found between 1977–1987 but was summarily dismissed because it didn’t fit with the accepted view in academia as to when humans first entered into North America. The evidence at Bluefish Cave consisted of butchered bones that show clear signs of stone tools! But, the finds at Bluefish Cave in NW Canada (the Yukon Territory) were not the only evidence and study summarily dismissed by academia because it didn’t fit with accepted theory as to when humans first entered into North America.
Another study that was summarily dismissed was published in March of 1981 in the journal “Arctic” (Vol. 34, No. 1) conducted by A.V. Jopling, W.N. Irving, and B.F. Beebe. The study is entitled “Stratigraphic, Sedimentological, and Faunal Evidence for the Occurrence of Pre-Sangamonian Artefacts in Northern Yukon.” Continue Reading
