I figured we need some more non-political stuff in here.

Two big archeological news stories I came across this week.

First, a very contentious claim (to say the least) that there is an archeology site that may provide evidence of human habitation in the Americas some 130,000 years ago. The currently held theory, best support by evidence, is that humans populated the Americans some 13-15,000 years ago. Here is the national geographic article on it:

Second, now scientist can extract ancient human DNA from soil left in caves, bones not necessary (though probably more reliable I imagine). This will allow study of the the DNA of human ancestors (and relations) more thoroughly, perhaps even relations we haven't uncovered yet. Here is the Science Magazine article:
