14,000-year-old village unearthed on B.C. island by UVic student


​An ancient village older than the pyramids has been unearthed by a University of Victoria student, and a B.C. First Nation says it backs up tribe stories passed down for generations.

Alisha Gauvreau, an anthropology PhD student at UVic, has been excavating a rocky spit on Triquet Island, some 500 kilometres northwest of Victoria.

Scientists say the artifacts exhumed on the remote island are painting a picture of how our civilization began. [Click Article Title for linkage]



THE ARCHEOLOGICAL RECORD

FIRST AMERICANS WERE AFRICAN-ABORIGINES

Who were the first Americans? Where did they come from? When did they first arrive here? This BBC documentary answers those questions. Scientist were stunned to find evidence of civilization in Brazil dating to around 50,000 years ago. Evidence of fire usage, rock art paintings, and some of the oldest skeletal remains ever found in the America's have established a new timeline for the arrival of modern humans in the America's. Analysis on skulls found show that they are more similar to the bone structure of Africans and Australian Aborigines.
