Researchers speculate that humans may have settled in America 130,000 Years Ago

First human settlement  started in America nearly 12000 to 15000 years back, but is it a fact? can you prove it with your concrete facts? A new finding in California has started a whole new wave in the Archaeological community and History geeks.

Some researchers have told that they’ve found some evidences which indicates of existence of ancient human like species in California some time nearly 120,000 and 140,000 years ago—which is more than 100,000 years earlier than we have been thinking  human existence anywhere within the American geography.

Researchers, who have been working at an archeological site called Cerutti mastodon in san diego, California might force a rewrite of the story of human race. They need not found human bones at the location. however as Researchers who have been working there tell it, their evidence—a mastodon skeleton, bone flakes, and several other massive stones—shows that this world was a “bone quarry,” where a very unknown hominin allegedly smashed contemporary mastodon bones with stone hammers, maybe to extract marrow or to mine the skeleton for raw materials.

Their claim relies on a collection of 130,000-year old mastodon bones (dated victimisation uranium) that show signs of been processed by humans, as per the paper published in Nature magazine.

To be clear, the team has not found human bones at the site.It is just their speculation that these these changes in the bones have not been because of natural process but rather had been processed by some human like species.

Some known Archaeologist have already rejected this claim siting their is no concrete evidence to prove this.
