A really interesting talk about the Gault site in Texas and the evidence uncovered that shows occupation 20,000 BP. It's almost an hour and a little more as he answers questions, a good part of the information is in the answers.

Mr. Wernecke also blows away the notion that the wooly mammoths and other large species were killed off by early man.

For over 400 years we have accepted the idea that the first peoples in the Americas walked here from Asia. We took the original idea and refined it as new data/ideas came to light and finally, after much struggle, decided that the event must have happened around 10-13,000 years ago. There was also some grudging agreement that Clovis technology, existing roughly 12,700-13,500 years ago, must be representative of those people. Parts of this hypothesis never made sense, but those inconsistencies were ignored and a story of the peopling of the Americas developed that we still teach our children. New information in the form of sites older than Clovis, dating of other events, environmental data and challenges to the inconsistencies of the hypotheses have shown that the old story we were all taught is wrong and new hypotheses are being suggested. The Gault Site in Central Texas, an Archaeological Conservancy property, is a very important contributor to these discussions.

Clark Wernecke is the Project Director for the Prehistory Research Project at the University of Texas at Austin and Executive Director of the Gault School of Archaeological Research, a nonprofit dedicated to research and education regarding the earliest peoples in the Americas.

Dr. Wernecke started his academic career with a degree in history from SMU followed by an MBA from Northwestern University, an M.A. in Anthropology from Florida Atlantic, and finally his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin. He came back to archaeology after a career in business and has worked in the Middle East, Mesoamerica, the American Southeast and Southwest, and Texas. Dr. Wernecke’s primary specialty is that of archaeological project management, but he has also written extensively on architecture and Paleoindian art.

PBS surely is... can't watch that sheit... and I do watch a lot of Nat Geo and Discovery and while much of their content is good, there's some woke BS in there, too.

PBS President Vows to Get More Woke, Hires Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Executive

Quote:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — PBS has fallen short on some aspects of diversity and is taking steps toward comprehensive change to be overseen by a new executive hired for the task, CEO and President Paula Kerger said.

While the measures took into account allegations that PBS favors white male filmmaker Ken Burns (“The Civil War,” “Baseball”) and slights viewers of color, Kerger said, they emerged from a deeper reappraisal prompted by the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer in 2020.

“I think these are important moments to pause and to look at ourselves very carefully,” Kerger said. While public broadcasting has a “long legacy of attempting to reflect our country and the diversity of it, I think we don’t always look as carefully in the mirror and recognize that there may be areas where we are not doing our best.”

Meh... PBS Spacetime isn't woke.. it's not even on the topic of woke.

The host is probably too liberal for you though.. all sciency and nerdy and sh*t.

I agree with Frank... your eggs might be a bit over-scrambled.

I'm not talking about science unless it's political science.
Everything political on PBS tends to be woke. Same with NPR.
Socialized media always become dominated by leftists, a tool they use to spread their distorted views of history and politics using the taxpayer's stolen loot. Like the Chicoms do.

Which has what bearing on the first humans to walk the N American continent? Neither PBS, nor Democrats, nor probably even mythical leftist lizard people existed 13k years ago

The most evil deed the lizard people did is convince the people that the lizard people don't exist.

Just ask Ray, he'll tell you.

Ray... why do you hate PBS? Is it because it's Public Broadcasting and you want no part of it because it's all leftist propaganda?

Bert and Ernie bathing together bothers you don't it?

I think I'm starting to get the picture here.
