Dr. Albert C. Goodyear III Interview! (4/26/13)

World Solutrean month ends with another highly respected member of the archaeological community. It is an honor to welcome Dr. Albert Goodyear, from the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology, to the program. He explains what his Allendale PaleoIndian Expedition has unearthed thus far at the now famous Topper, South Carolina Site. He announces to the TRP audience that his team will unveil evidence at the upcoming PaleoAmerican Odyssey mega conference in October that will almost certainly put a "new corner stone" on the original date of the occupation of North America by humans to at least 50,000 years!

Dr. Goodyear also quells rumors that the Topper Site had been contaminated by "wash" into the area. He goes on to state that at the mega conference his team will present a large quantity of stone tools  which will squash further rumors that what they have uncovered at Topper are merely "naturally formed items" that only resemble man made tools.

Dr. Goodyear finds out, as all our esteemed guests quickly do, how serious we are about this subject. He knows now that the interview was not the typical overnight "coast to coast" or "ground zero" nut case interview where they try to talk to him about aliens crash landing in the distant past or the possible existence of dimensional beings. Frank, does though make him aware of his Solutrean "vision quests" and in the end "He of the First Blood" gets an invite to take a quest to the Topper site when ever he makes it down to the area!

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!

Dr. Tom Dillehay Interview! (4/5/13)

TRP is proud to give you an interview unlike any you will hear on the mainstream. We are joined by one of the preeminent anthropologists of our time, Dr. Tom Dillehay, of Vanderbilt University. He opens "World Solutrean Month" with an intellectual bang!

Dr. Dillehay along with his distinguished interdisciplinary and international team, consisting of dozens of scientists, has been hard at work for over 30 years at the now famous site in Monte Verde, Chile. There they have helped uncover the true pre-history of our hemisphere. Thanks to his team's exhaustive work they have finally upended once and for all the "pseudo religious orthodoxy" of the "Clovis First" model. He recounts the tremendous amount of resistance they have faced over the years from the "North American scientific establishment," who's careers, paradigm, financial grants, and potential politics apparently motivated them to blockade any new or ground breaking information on the subject.

The average layman when they think of the world of archaeology and anthropology think first of the Indiana Jones movies.... Obviously, things in the Doctor's real world don't often get that exciting, but, Dr. Dillehay tells us some stories about the scientific oppression he experienced that one would expect could only come straight out of Hollywood. Times like when he and members of his team were physically threatened, shouted down, had their brake lines cut, jobs threatened, PhD's questioned, and even at one point accused of being CIA agents that artificially created the entire site at Monte Verde!

Frank impresses the good Dr. with a wide range of thought provoking questions that include a wonderful analogy to the original Greek scientist, Anaximander, and the similar struggles he faced breaking the orthodoxies and paradigms of ancient times. Frank also brings up his own very personal ongoing search for our ancestors on his "Solutrean vision quests" that have taken him to many archaeological sites around the United States! Dr. Dillehay wraps up the interview with news on some new sites around South America and presents an intriguing thought as to how ancient mortuary rituals may be the reason there is such a paucity of pre-Clovis skeletal remains being found.
