[....] Suttie said they have found some material in the campsite that came from central Maine. - Human Occupation / South America - "The altiplano of Peru and Bolivia appears at first sight to be a very inhospitable land.[NP] 'So, already we know there were some connections with central Maine as early as between 10,000 and 11,000 years,' he said. Its high mountains, windswept plains, and icy waters of Lake Titicaca make it a stark, yet beautiful landscape. ) at a base elevation of 12,600 feet above sea level, is the ancestral home to the famous Andean animals (llamas and alpacas) and plants (potatoes and quioa).
[NP] But for the first time, a large campsite has been uncovered that proves people moved through the area when ice still covered parts of the province.[NP] 'We have individual finds and that's how we knew people were here,' said Brent Suttie, archaeologist in charge of the site.According to one scientist, the land on which this structure was built last stood above water more than 11,000 years ago.In January , Indian marine scientists discovered what may be the more extensive remains of two ancient cities in the Gulf of Cambay.These creatures evolved in this harsh environment through natural selection.
However, the highly successful human occupation of the area that began approximately 10,000 years ago depended largely on cultural adaptations, rather than biological ones.[NP] The invention of agriculture some 10,000 years ago disrupted these ancient soil-building processes.When humans started draining and plowing up the natural topsoil for planting, they exposed the buried carbon to oxygen, creating carbon dioxide and releasing it into the air.Chert, jasper and quartzite were often used by humans during this period. With the right stewardship, Lal says, the agricultural soils of the world have the potential to soak up 13 percent of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere today - the equivalent of scrubbing every ounce of CO2 released into the atmosphere since 1980.[....] For millions of years, a natural partnership between plants and soil microbes has helped regulate carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.World population was at a few million people, likely below 5 million. Less than a year after these results were published another study showed that the stone circles had been preceded by wooden circles of 6-metre pine 'totem poles' dated to 8,000 B. [Based on: by Graham Hancock and Santha Faiia, Heaven's Mirror, Quest For The Lost Civilization, p.

According to popular belief: 'Where the Sumerians came from is still disputed.
