    This well documented find confirms the following less well documented two finds:

    Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clovis_culture#Other_sites



    Meadowcroft Rockshelter in southwestern Pennsylvania, excavated 1973–78, with evidence of occupancy dating back from 16,000 to 19,000 years ago.[107]

    Cactus Hill in southern Virginia, with artifacts such as unfluted bifacial stone tools with dates ranging from c. 15,000 to 17,000 years ago.[108]

    Hotspur: Why, so can I, or so can any man;
    But will they come when you do call for them? Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1, Act III:

    go with the flow the river knows . . .

    IIRC it was the Monte Verde site in South America that really broke open the flood gates concerning the realization that humans were in the Americas prior to the Clovis culture.

    The Monte Verde site, now dated ~14,800 confirms the model of coastal migration model, and fits the time line of the Texas site, Meadowcroft and Cactus Hill sites.

    The Bluefish cave site in the Yukon, Alaska dated ~24,000 also fits the model of coastal migration beginning human presence in America.
