    So true. Keep looking down, thats my motto! A year ago I bought a complete tear down house on a really small lot in Raleigh NC. During the early renovations I found 30 or 40 broken point, tips and some flakes. Getting into the foundation drain work and grading they just started popping up like mushrooms. Today alone I found 30 or 40 parts and pieces and a few hole points. (also a few civil war bullets). Looks like morrow mountain and similar age stuff. I am no expert, but clearly there was a lot of activity here, and when walking streams or fields in this county and adjacent ones I almost always find something. I agree with the population approximations. While we will never know actual numbers, if the first peoples arrived 15-20k years ago, and within a few thousand years had been everywhere, and other than bone and possibly native copper, it was all stone. On a side note, my first year of boy scouts my scoutmaster told me. Dont bother looking they are all found, this is in 1980. Boy was he wrong!!!!

    Wow, that’s really interesting maybe I would like to use this information in my essay but I have to come back to your problem I have an idea how to solve it. I’m not sure about maybe changing your location on Google will help you to search the sites because Google will think that you are in this region and will recommend them to you, or try to connect the support of this resource. I also can recommend you guys from www. Removed by Admin. they also do different researches and they also are interesting and I’m sure that you’ll find something interesting for you.

    Yes, it's a lot of information, I would guess it was input by more than one person. In my area, I know of one popular earthwork that is not on this page, but other than that, the rest are there. Probably about 90% accurate.

    Thanks, I managed to find the Ohio one since I'm close to OH anyway. Interesting. I wonder if it is a group collaboration effort of all the archaeology divisions, surely one individual can't do all that work? Curious if you investigate any of the sites as to how accurate this info is.

    Very interesting . Some day we will have very advanced scans and all values and religions that stop discovery will be in the past .
    That is when everything will be revealed . Just scientifically hippying out here .

    Its a little tricky. I think they are a business application that an individual puts together. Consolidating data into a location map. Luckily someone did it for NA in Ohio. I would start by typing in your area, Native American then a coma, then the term zeemaps. See what comes up.

    I’ve seen some of the LiDAR from the Amazon, and it’s crazy how big some of the cities were, and none had any idea....

    I've heard the estimated peak population may have been as many as 57 million across North America at one time. Crazy to think about. People are now thinking the Amazon was city after city. The jungle just swallowed up the evidence in the past few hundred years. Lots of food and fresh water...people are going to thrive.

    The site in NE Arkansas known as the Sloan site is allegedly the oldest cemetery documented in North America, going back some 10k years, I believe, and the burials there are six feet deep. That’s way below the reach of any plow.
    I have a friend who went to Iraq to help with the software on a GpR unit they were using to document a huge site, I believe it was the biblical city of Sodom, and I have begged to borrow her equipment for a week or two.😁

    I think we’ve only scratched the surface in most of the country.
