The first shoots are coming up in the garden

Archaeological researchers have suggested that several dozen Stone-age tools from six locations along the US east coast are “European-style”.

[N]ewly-discovered and recently-dated early Maryland and other US east coast Stone Age tools are from between 26,000 and 19,000 years ago – and are therefore contemporary with the virtually identical western European material.

What’s more, chemical analysis carried out last year on a European-style stone knife found in Virginia back in 1971 revealed that it was made of French-originating flint.
