Dr. Michael Waters Interview! (4/12/13)

"World Solutrean Month" continues with another very distinguished guest! We are privileged to have on Dr. Michael Waters of the Center for the Study of the First Americans.
He is a coordinator for the archaeological mega conference, the PaleoAmerican Odyssey, to be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, October 17-19, 2013.

These scientific mega conferences are held only about once every 10 years and they bring together the leading experts in the field of "First Americans" archaeology. These decennial forums help to solidify the field and get them to critically examine, move forward, and accept potentially new and ground breaking research. The gatherings have been the catalyst that has allowed us to move beyond "Clovis" and break entrenched paradigms. Their main focus is to have in depth discussions about the evidence of the Ice Age colonization of the Americas. They will also present a treasure trove of amazing artifacts from key sites from all across the hemisphere!

Don't miss out on this historic conference, held at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center, the largest such gathering since the Clovis and Beyond Conference held in 1999! This conference is for everyone--archaeologists, avocational archaeologists, Quaternary scientists, students, the general public, and anyone interested in archaeology.

In attendance will be Dr. Dennis Stanford and Dr. Bruce Bradley, originators of the Solutrean Hypothesis! Also our recent guest, Dr Tom Dillehay will be there and many many more!

Dr. Waters breaks down for us the terminology, history, and meaning of "Clovis and Pre-Clovis" and talks about many of the archaeological sites he has visited and their scientific significance!

He also breaks the news that Kennewick man has finally been fully studied and a new book will be out shortly with the findings!
