Decades of hard work in the field by hundreds of scientists has turned up
thousands of hominid fossils (fig. 15.2), including a few good skeletons and many
good skulls that show clearly how humans have evolved over 7 million years.
This avalanche of ... Many other museums in Africa, Europe, and Asia have
similar large collections of our early ancestors, so there are lots of fossils to work

The most important potential applications of amino acid racemization dating will
surely be in the field of paleo-anthropology. Examples of this are the aspartic acid
racemization dates of 40,000 years or greater suggested for North American
paleo- indian skeletons. Because racemization dating can be used to date bones
which are too old for radiocarbon dating, the technique can be used to provide
direct age estimates for a previously undatable period of human evolution. Also ...

archeological discoveries made in America, and it caused a permanent shift in
the prevailing paradigm. All of a sudden, archeologists had another 7,000 years
of human history to account for. The find also made the search for early
Americans ...
