        The Oldest known Clovis site in North America is in Mexico.....El-Fin-del-Mundo. This was a Mastadon kill site that has been radio carbon dated to over 13,000 years. It is located
        in northwest Mexico near the border with New Mexico and Arizona. There are very good web sites regarding this find. Click image for larger version

          What is very interesting is; the Clovis point I found this summer is a dead ringer for the big one that appears in the hand of the finder. These types of Clovis points were only
          produced during a short time span. One would ask....Why does mine look almost exactly like the one found thousands of miles away? Experts think of course that the Paleo
          peoples moved alot due to migration and following the fauna. They brought their skills and points with them. Click image for larger version
