Evidence for YD impact in Cornwall?

18 Apr 2012

At http://cosmictusk.com/elevated-iridium-at-younger-dryas-in-england/ is from a paper delivered at the iNQUA congress at Bern in June 2011 and concerns a geological layer from Bodmin Moor in Cornwall (Hawks Tor, peat sediments). The authors are William Marshall, Katie Head, Robert Clough and Andrew Fisher. It may be that other sites will now be explored for a similar anomaly as geologists notoriously find new things on each visit to quarries and cuttings - missed by others on earlier visits. In Germany small pond structures also gave evidence of very high temperatures in the form of internal melting and glass formation = matric rich breccias. These are small coloured rocks in a sandy or silty black matrix (but not necessarily dated to the Younger Dryas event, and probably somewhat later during the Holocene).

At http://patagoniamonsters.blogspot.co.uk ... the title of this blog caught my eye. The blog author is one Austin Whittal and the post concerns a Chines Peruvian archaeologist that said hominids predated modern humans in the Americas - namely, Homo Erectus.

Another web site, www.pleistocenecoalition.com, is worth adding to your list of sites to look at on irregular occasions as it provides lots of links to other sites of a catastrophist nature - such as www.valsequilloclassic.com which is about supposed evidence for ancient humans in Mexico. Another interesting site, earmarked last year, is http://sites.google.com/site/cosmopier/impact-craters/holocene-palaeolag... and is about Holocene impact events. For example, one site dates to 1200BC, at the end of the LB age (conventional dating).

At www.pasthorizons.com/index.php/archives/04/2012/a-mesolithic-village-ben... is basically another Mesolithic site in the North Sea basin that was flooded towards the end of the 4th millennium BC - rather, swamped would be more apt. The site lies off the coast of Denmark and joins various other discoveries in the same general region over the years. The remains are from the Ertebolle culture which flourished in Denmark between 6000 and 3500BC.

Meanwhile, Hans Vogel of the University of Tubingen has concluded, after an in-depth study, that Marco Polo really did go to China and was employed under Kublai Khan. This study is an attempt to lay to rest some of the bogies that detractors have levelled at the account (see www.alphagalileo.org/ViewItem.aspx?ItemId=119306-
