Archaeologists have found evidence that early humans could live in America already 14-19 thousand years ago

Scientists found evidence that the emergence of the first people on American land could be another 14 to 19 KYR and it is 6 thousand years earlier than was considered in the scientific world. Writes The Daily mail.

In the South, Chilean territory, archaeologists found stone tools, traces, indicating that this place once was the hearth; the remains of animals and plants that have been cooked. Thanks to radiocarbon study, experts suggested that the finds date back to approximately 12 to 17 KYR B. C. E. Therefore, the appearance of these settlers on the mainland were in much earlier before it was settled the first paleo-Indians were.

The previous four decades it was customary to assume that the first humans appeared on American soil, was crossed on a land bridge from the Asian territories on the North American order of 12-13 KYR, These people represented the Clovis culture, characterized by smaller fluted spear heads from stone.

This may indicate the arrival of primitive hunters from other lands. It is possible that the Pacific coast or the Andes.

In that period most of North America and a significant part of South American lands were under the ice. Then just ended lednikoviy. The location of the region near which the encampment of ancient people, is at the base of a huge glacier.

Probably warming contributed to the early primitive humans of the migration process. In the opinion of Tom Zilahi, has discovered the Parking lot was hunters, likely in the summer. But in the summer in that distant time the climate was rather cold, so prehistoric Americans not so-that simply to survive.
