Archaeologists unearth ancient stone tools

June 18, 2008

— A local man has unearthed two ancient stone tools in an archaeological dig in Allendale County, S.C., a rare find that could provide more information about how early Americans lived.

And if more evidence proves the artifact is a new type of tool and one archaeologists haven't found before, it could be named after Matthew Carey of Hilton Head Island.

The 22-year-old University of South Carolina anthropology major volunteered at the Topper Site where USC archaeologist Dr. Albert Goodyear has been excavating for 10 years. Carey found the tools on June 8, the last day of the 2008 dig.

Though it's Goodyear's project, new finds are typically named after their discoverers.

Let's admit there are Problems with Radiometric and Carbon-14 Datinghttp://www.specialtyinterests.net/carbon14.html

Bondmen,There are issues related to radiometric dating but do you really think scientists haven't examined the sorts of issues raised by the link?Check out:http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/hovind/howgood-c14.htmlor maybe there is some vast Darwinist conspiracy to suppress the Truth?Ah, that's it!

Scientists obviously do not agree on the efficacy of radiometric dating, i.e., the opinions and studied judgments of scientists are not monolithic. Get over it already pdecell.

pdecell,If Carbon-14 dating is true, and if coal was millions or billions of years old, then one would not expect to find ANY C14 in coal, right?

"Why are bondmen and gr discussing science?"And we can read for ourselves to determine what you would know about science or conclusions. Just because something doesn't meet your political goals does not mean it's wrong.

Why are bondmen and gr discussing science? Everything they know comes from the Bible, doesn't it?

I think it's all a governmental conspiracy kind of like landing on the moon. The landing part was all shoot on a Hollywood theater set, right. Come on give me a break.

Among other implements discovered were a few stone data storage devices, which on further inspection were found to still contain personal information about the early inhabitants of the central plains...
