Beringia Theory Follow-Up David Haysley

Just as somewhat of a footnote on the blog discussing the Beringia Theory, this brief blog gives some useful information that was not included.

Addition Beringia Theory Information

An ancient grave was discovered in 1970 by Albert Redder and Frank Watt in Bosque County Texas (near Clifton, TX).  The bodies of a man and a child were laid together in a shallow pit beneath the broad overhang of what is now called the Horn Shelter. A turtle shell was placed over the face of the deceased man along with other items (i.e. deer antlers, fragments of fine red ocher, and a bifaced stone) likely signifying his power or status.  Carbon dating shows grave was at least 11,000 years old. Artifacts from site indicate the Folsom Culture (post dated culture after Clovis Culture) and supports Beringia Theory.  (Bosque Museum in Clifton, TX has excellent exhibit on the Horn Shelter discovery, well worth visiting. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and gained a lot of information on the early Native Americans. )
