The CM site is, to our knowledge, the oldest in situ, well-documented archaeological site in North America and, as such, substantially revises the timing of arrival of Homo into the Americas.Extended Figure 3b: Plan view of in situ femoral heads in grid units D3/E3, which also contained a claimed anvil and mastodon molar fragments If real, this would be the Khwarezmian sack of a self-assured scientific consensus by invaders from the far fringes of Pleistocene American archaeology. Still reading the paper but the archaeologists I’ve spoken to have been unanimous in saying no. 230Th/U radiometric analysis of multiple bone specimens using diffusion–adsorption–decay dating models indicates a burial date of 130.7 ± 9.4 thousand years ago.
Rugby Leagues advancement was also partly held back by the ridiculous position of the IRB to ban any player who dared give it a go. Even playing RL on an RU pitch could 'professionalise' the pitch! This led to RL struggling to gain any foothold in universities and the armed forces for example. I have spent my whole life without having watched TV on a Tuesday or Thursday night because, your honour, they are rugby training nights. Soon, when people ask if I have watched a programme I will be able to say no every day because it's weight training on a Monday and Wednesday night from now on.The only problem in the old days was missing Top of the Pops and a potential Led Zeppelin, AC DC or Status Quo performance. I never thought I would write this next line: I have missed Peter Wright.The tackles were ferocious and at one stage there were some fisticuffs and we were down to fourteen a side. Almost rugby league and I wondered to myself: would rugby league lads handle this or are they tougher? I don't mind the shambolic scrums because their game is a passing and handling feast.The bravery taking the ball into contact at full speed is admirable, and their ability to spot an overlap shows a vision that not many union players possess. For instance does it mean anything that more countries have adopted rugby union or is that a quirk of its slightly more public school background?
