Archaeologists at the Cooper’s Field in western Idaho found 14 stemmed projective points that were created more than 16,000 years ago!
This past week, 14 stemmed projectile points were discovered at the Coopers Field excavation site in Western Idaho.
So when I say stemmed projectile points, it would be like a spear or something like that.
These points range in size from half an inch to two inches long, and these were allegedly created sometime between 13,200 and 16,000 years ago.
This makes these 2,300 years older than stem points previously found at the site.
Not only are these the oldest weapons that have been found in the Americas, but what’s also amazing about these is that these are apparently similar to different points that were found in Hokkaido, Japan that date back to 16,000 to 20,000 years ago.
This further adds significance to the hypothesis that people from the Ice Age period located in Northeast Asia and North America actually shared early genetic and cultural connections.
