Our ability to comprehend beyond our vocal and haptic (sense of touch) communication has played a huge role in why mankind has survived as a species. Specifically, our ability to impose meaning onto symbols, graphic or inscription, to create a visual form of language to coincide with our verbal communication. This method developed over thousands of years. Over a long period of time, similar to the development of technology, each tidbit of achievement adding to last until we finally come to the form of language(s) we have today. But to get to here we had to go through thousands of years of development that did not already exist. To quote paleoanthropologist and rock art researcher Genevieve von Petzinger, “Those people didn’t have the shoulders of any giants to stand on. They were the original shoulders.

At At first glance this may appear like any other fossilized bone fragment, but upon closer examination you discover it is much more than just a fossil. With the light held just right, the image jumps out at you. It is then that you realize that it is actually a canvas, a portable piece of art containing an etching of the earliest depiction of a human in the Western Hemisphere.

The bone is telling a story via the portrait of a fisherman, with spear in hand, catching a large fish. On the other end of the canvas there are a series of chevrons, tally marks, recording the number of previous catches perhaps? A story bone, nonetheless, containing the earliest recorded human train of thought.

Join us as we plunge, head long into forgotten trails and hidden rivers beds, searching for lost signs of our paleo-ancestors.

These lost remains hold the key to our understanding who came before us, and our learning who lived here during the Ice age, long before modern civilization.

The Fossil Hunters team does extensive planning and research before each fossil hunt takes place. Old maps and records are painstakingly referenced for the original location of rivers and streams, as they were before the Army Corps of Engineers diverted and drained them for future developmental purposes.

“The stone tools and a mastodon carcass taken out of the site date back 14,550 years, which is considerably older than evidence left by the Clovis.

What does it mean? If people back then were butchering animals with delicately crafted tools as far southeast as Florida, it means the first Americans crossed the land bridge much earlier than previously thought.

Archaeological certainty is no small feat. One of the challenges of dating prehistoric artifacts is finding organic carbon material to radiocarbon date — you can’t date stone spearheads alone.

A critical part of the evidence comes from the tusk of the butchered beast. The tusk features cut marks that would have been inside the skull of a mastodon, suggesting that it was extracted by humans.

When preliminary forensic tests on the bone began in 2009, experts went on the assumption that the carving was fake.
But these tests, and further analyses by the Smithsonian team, proved that the etching was real.
(Read National Geographic magazine editor Chris Sloan’s 2009 take on the newfound mammoth art: “Mammoth Art in America, or Mammoth Fraud?“)
The team compared elements in the engraved bones with others from the site, which once hosted giant beasts and nomadic bands of Ice Age hunters.

The scientists also observed the etching via optical and electron microscopy, which revealed “no discontinuity in coloration between the carved grooves and the surrounding material,” according to a statement. This suggests that both surfaces aged at the same time, and that the grooves were not made more recently with metal tools.
