Solutrean Blades Identified in Chesapeake Bay 20,000 Years Old
By the way, the map above needs to show the way more likely [But ever so much longer!!] Pacific route. The mid continent route was likely never open to travel at all until the end of the Ice Age, any more that one could cross the Antarctic easily. Also the Bay of Biscay likely knocks of several hundred mile of travel. Thus the real distance to traverse is from the Grand Banks to near Ireland. which is half what is on this map. Put even one island in the middle and it looks quite feasibleIn fact we DO have evidence for at least one "BIG Island" in the middle which was involved in blocking off the warm currents from reaching Europe duruing the Ice Age and whose demise was associated with violent volcanic explosions which covered the entire bed of the North Atlantic Ocean with debris.very indication that this way-station was visited repeatedly, eventually settled by early agriculturalists Out of Africa, and eventually invaded the Mediterranean region re-introducing the older version of the R1 Y-DNA gene and the beginnings of Megalithic and regular-Neolithic culture, new styles of weapons and waging warfare, and which was remembered in the Egyptian legend of Atlantis (Verifiably already present at the beginnings of Egyptian history)
