Charlottes caves yield ancient artifacts
trefwoorden: Canada - Queen Charlotte eilanden - beenderen - quartz - speerpunt - 9.000 BCE
A caving expedition to the Queen Charlotte Islands is believed to have found the massive ancient bones of a grizzly bear.
A species of grizzly bears no longer found on the islands and the base of a spear point that could represent the oldest human artifact on the B.C. coast.
The quartz spear point could be up to 11,000 years old, based on the sediment layer in which it was found, lending further credence to the theory that early humans migrated down the coast of North America by watercraft rather than travelling inland along an ice-free corridor.
