14,000 Years Old Site Found on Triquet Island, British Columbia
The oral history of the Heiltsuk people in British Columbia tells of a coastal strip that did not freeze during the last ice age, and that their people used as a place of refuge during the ice age. Now archaeologists have found an ancient hearth on Triquet Island that is carbon dated to 14,000 years ago. They have also found fish hooks, a hand drill for igniting fires, a wooden device for launching projectiles and a cache of stone tools near the hearth. This bolsters the concept of the entry into the Americas by way of coastal travel. And the date of the site is a Pre-Clovis date.
