Scientists can forget about everything they ever thought they knew about early civilization in North America after researchers discovered a new mysterious village that is thought to be around 10,000 years old. Settlement Was Home To Artifacts Dating Back To Ice Age The new settlement was found by researchers from the Hakai Institute University of Victoria and members of the local First Nations.
The village said to be 10,000 years old is home to artifacts that are said to date back to the Ice Age, and it was said that this is the oldest human settlement to have ever been found in North America. Researchers believe that the village is even older than the Giza pyramids. The discovery of the village falls in line with the history of the Heiltsuk Nation. Over many generations, tales have been told and handed down about an ancient coastal village.
Researchers analyzed charcoal that had been found in the settlement, and they say that the village was established between 13, 613 and 14, 086 years ago. They also said that they had found evidence that suggested sea level around Triquet Island had been surprisingly stable for 15,000 years.
This seems to confirm that the region was stable over the millennia, as the Heiltsuk nation had always claimed. Huge Migrations Occurred Along British Columbia Coastline Says Researchers Artifacts from the village were found on Triquet Island, and island around 310 miles to the northwest of Victoria in Canada. Among the items found were spears, fish hooks, and tools that were said to have allowed for the lighting of fires.
The village was discovered last year, but it has been only now that researchers say a huge human migration happened along the coastline in British Columbia. Archaeologists had said that humans went to North America over a land bridge situated between Russia and Alaska and continued their migration on foot. Now they think that perhaps people made a move down the coast in boats.
Of course, both may have occurred, but they now say that the coastal route more than likely came before the inland one. Alisha Gauvreau, a University of Victoria Pd.D. Student, said that she remembered back when they sat there and marveled at how old it was. What is meant and how it would change the idea of people first arrived in North America.
