Evidence of Human Occupation in Mexico Around the Last Glacial Maximum
Documentation of colonization during the last glacial period is unheard of because of the minimal artifacts found and writing was not invented until later. There are other signs that prove colonization besides documentation. New findings have theorized that there is some cultural evidence in Central America. Archeologists have found almost 2,000 stone relics that have revealed a different, unknown stone age that has not been discovered in Northern Mexico.
The evidence indicates that it is from the Last Glacial Maximum era. This period has minimal evidence of colonization because of how long ago it was, which was around 27,000 – 19,000 years ago. One of the earliest discovered cultures in the Americas was the Clovis culture, and that was around 13,000 years ago. This could be a major breakthrough in scientific history because it would open new possibilities for research. It would illustrate how these people lived and adapted in their environment, as well as cross-culturalism within the civilization.
