Science Saturday – Adam really was American

Ancient North Americans gouged elaborate rock art into a heap of big boulders northeast of Reno, Nev., more than 10,000 years ago and perhaps 15,000 years ago. That makes the carvings the oldest known petroglyphs on the continent, according to a paper published in the Journal of Archaeological Science.

    “It must surely strike him as strange that men so remote from him should be so near, and that beasts so near to him should be so remote.”
