Humans were present in Brazil 50,000 years ago is the momentous, and well-documented claim, in this French excavation report. The sandstone rock shelter produced over 6000 stone tools from Pleistocene contexts 50,000 years old, a run of 54 radiocarbon dates (dating to 48,000-32,000 BP) and some 50 structures, probably interpreted as ancient hearths. The claim that the Americas were inhabited almost 40,000 years before Monte Verde is stunning, and this book will be looked back on as one of the most important works of the decade. However, because it is published in French only, it has so far received relatively little attention. Includes a separate folder containing maps and plans. Bookseller Inventory #
