Many archaeologists claim they do not see simple face-like images carved and/or ground into lithic artifact material, and that these do not exist. For a discussion of this from the perspective of recent research in neuroscience, click here: The age of most of the artifacts at this site has not yet been conclusively determined, but their quantity, consistency of form, distinctive carving marks, and representation of bird and shaman-like hybrid bird-human images indicate that they are of human manufacture.

This practice could have originated in Africa, migrating through millennia of ethnic and cultural diversification northward and eastward into the Americas, surviving here into at least the Early Woodland Period (ca. Initially recognized only as crude stone tools, but subsequently as much more, the artifacts have appeared in large quantity at depths of from near the surface to well below, and the surface of this large site has only been scratched.
At this time, several doctorate-level professionals - geologists, petrologists, anthropologists, a forensic biologist, and a few archaeologists - have personally identified human agency in both lithic and organic material.
Initially, the possibility of a "pre-Clovis" presence came to mind since while none of the popularly recog- nized "Indian" spear heads and projectile points had appeared, many of the human-modified stones of local and non-local lithology were professionally recognized as in fact being artifactual, with others having a very high proba- bility of being so.
But subsequently, similar artifact material has appeared at other sites in direct context with points, blades, etc.
One of the hairs remaining after the necessarily destructive attempt at DNA extraction has been verified by Dr.
Scott Moody, professor of forensic biology at Ohio University, as being obviously human and apparently quite old. Moody has also identified dyed plant fibers in context with the artifact material.More important by far than just this particular site, the finds here have led to the discovery of a simple and consistent zoo-anthropomorphic iconography apparently routinely and usually perfunctorily incorporated into lithic and other artifact material over many thousands of years and across widely separated areas of this planet. Meantime, click here to see the existing clumsy start at this.) Most commonly, the imagery is carved and/or ground into pebble- or cobble-sized stones.Since this website was launched in 2003 and widely viewed, these are becoming more extensively recognized, typically characterized (perhaps sometimes misleadingly) as "portable rock art".Human remains in the form of hair, usually dark brown when not faded, have appeared in direct context with the lithic artifacts. Tom Gilbert attempted mitochondrial DNA analysis of other hairs from the site, but unfortunately none of their DNA had survived, despite their outward appearance of being in good condition.Some of the hairs were submitted to the Center for the Study of the First Americans, where in November 2003 the late Dr. It is hoped that hairs might appear that have been adequately protected from moisture, and freezing and thawing.The advent of the internet has recently allowed a worldwide exchange of images and data that clearly validate the presence of such artifact material and the consistency of its essential iconographic components and subcomponents.
