It's all starting to spill out as the Clovis theory takes another stumble. A Canadian scientist analysed animal remains found in Ohio and claims a leg bone of an extinct giant ground sloth had been butchered - one of those notoriously difficult kind o interpretations that we might expect to have some kickback in the future - see Cut marks on the bones have been analysed and it seems they represent human action. On that basis, as the bone was found in Ohio, this is taken to prove a human presence there in the period prior to Clovis. In fact, a wave of Ice Age migrants from Siberia, it is thought.
