The first, or basal, component, Monte Verde I, produced a radiocarbon determination of 33,370 530 years B. The second component, Monte Verde II, has produced more than 30 radiocarbon determinations averaging 12,500 to 13,000 years B. They had to examine the artifacts, study the sites stratigraphy and evaluate the reliability and internal consistency of the radiocarbon determinations.P., associated with stones not yet shown to be artifactual (Roosevelt, et. Their on-site visit focused on depositional circumstances, confirmation of stratigraphy, validation of depositional context, anthropogenic reality of alleged living structures, and potential sources of carbon contamination at or near the site (Adovasio and Pedler 197).They carved detailed images into the hardest rock, worshipped the sun, and are the first to carve an image of the Egyptian Ankh – key of life and universal knowledge, 200,000 years before the Egyptians came to light.

The now fossilised, worked bone in the photo (above), was found nearly 40ft deep in upper Pleistocene deposits dating from about 10,000 - 8,000 BC, at Tequixquiax, in the north of the valley of Mexico. (Present location: Museo Nacional de Antropologia, Mexico).

The focus of debate today is centred on suggestions that the Americas had been colonised by people from what is generically termed the 'old-world'.
