Were they humans who founded what is known as the Clovis culture over 13,000 years ago?Or did other, totally unrelated peoples precede the Clovis immigrants?The question nagged at me—not least because of my own experiences watching promising relationships peter out over text message—so I set out on a mission.I read dozens of studies about love, how people connect and why they do or don’t stay together.
Now new international research shows that people of another culture and technology were present concurrently or even previous to those of Clovis.
Credit: Jim Barlow Evidence that a non-Clovis culture was present in North America at least as early as Clovis people themselves and likely before, was presented by an international team of researchers from the USA, the UK, and Denmark. Loren Davis of Oregon State University mapped the stratigraphy and studied the site formation processes. Paula Campos and Professor Eske Willerslev from the Centre for Geo Genetics at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, profiled the many DNA finds from the caves. Thomas Stafford, Jr., also from Centre of Geo Genetics, was in charge of the radiocarbon geochronology and biogeochemistry.
The team Archeological excavations at the Paisley Caves in south-central Oregon were led by Dr. The evidence The evidence for a pre-13,000 year old non-Clovis culture in North America includes obsidian and chert artifacts known as Western Stemmed projectile points, and DNA-profiling of dried human excrement – more accurately known as coprolites.
The table below shows that while the majority of American adults (56% or 113 million people) are not in the dating market (they are married or living as married), the number of potential romance-seekers is still huge.
