    After reading this I took my clovis artifact collection and looked at it in a whole other light. It was very sad.

    I always wondered how such an advanced (primitve) society could have perished in the face of the much more primitve and unskilled toolmakers that followed.

    I think my clovis collection just may have gone up in value....Ill never sell. They will be passed down in my family.

    They made the most beautiful points..they carved great trinkets..either for just decoration or religous purpose...they traded far and wide with other cultures. They enjoyed beauty. They were fairly cruel..but that was probably just the times.


    If the clovis people had not died in this cataclism...no telling how the europeans would have done when they arrived 12,000 years later.They would have maybe met a superior culture. or the clovis may have invaded europe..lol

    a few falling rocks from the sky....keep looking up!!!

    Since gunpowder was discovered in Eurasia, I'd think the Europeans would have as much trouble with them as they did with South Americans.
