Here’s an abstract for a presentation to be given at Paleoamerican Odyssey, a conference on First American archaeology, in October 2013:
A Genomic Sequence of a Clovis Individual
The Clovis complex is by some scientists considered being the oldest unequivocal evidence of humans in the Americas, dating between ca. 11,050 to 10,800 14C yr B.P. Only one human skeleton has been directly AMS dated to Clovis age and found associated with Clovis technology namely the Anzick human remains from Montana. We are currently sequencing the nuclear and mitochondrial genome from this human skeleton in order to address the origins and descendents of Clovis. I will present the results obtained by our international consortium.
Full set here. You’ll notice among the presenters trans-Atlantic Solutrean dispersal proponent Dennis Stanford, with new finds of (what he argues to be) telltale “laurel leaf” knives from the Chesapeake Bay watershed, including some picked up off the continental shelf, and Brazilian researcher Walter Neves of two-wave and “Luzia” fame on his Lagoa Santa work.
Thanks to Gisele Horvat for the heads-up.
