Friedkin Archaeological Site, Texas
 (JPG) (154,176 bytes) ( 918 x 791 )
The Debra L. Friedkin archaological site near Salado, Texas is a multicomponent site, with Clovis remains overlying pre-Clovis stone tools. The discoverers of the pre-Clovis site claim that this was an occupation site, and their dates of 15,500 years before present pre-date Clovis dates by several thousand years (Michael Waters and associates in March 25, 2011 Science magazine article). The site is located within the floodplain of Buttermilk Creek; it is also about 250m from the Gault Clovis site, the largest Clovis site in North America. Many sites older than Clovis sites have been found in recent decades, destroying the Clovis-first paradigm, and convincingly proving that the Americas were settled much earlier than originally thought. The image was acquired October 20, 2005, covers an area of 13.6 x 12 km, and is located near 30.9 degrees north latitude, 97.5 degrees west longitude.
