Description

Washington Post Magazine reports on the 25-year-long "campaign of "innuendo and distortion" surrounding an archeological finding that has changed "the theory about who the first Americans were." The story focuses on how James Adovasio, an archeologist at Mercyhurst College in Pennsylvania, uncovered a 12,000-year-old spear point at a site 30 miles southwest of Pittsburgh in 1973. The report describes how "date after date showed that the sate was inhibited before archaeological orthodoxy said it could have been." The story reports on the corroboration of Adovasio's theory after other similar artifacts - more than 12,000-year-old - have been found in Chile, Virginia and South Carolina.
