[....] Suttie said they have found some material in the campsite that came from central Maine. - Human Occupation / South America - "The altiplano of Peru and Bolivia appears at first sight to be a very inhospitable land.

[NP] 'So, already we know there were some connections with central Maine as early as between 10,000 and 11,000 years,' he said. Its high mountains, windswept plains, and icy waters of Lake Titicaca make it a stark, yet beautiful landscape. ) at a base elevation of 12,600 feet above sea level, is the ancestral home to the famous Andean animals (llamas and alpacas) and plants (potatoes and quioa).

These cultural developments from the Archaic (ca.9,500- 4000 years ago) through the Formative Period (ca.

3200-2000 years ago) attest to a long period of economic and social intensification, a trend that is common throughout the world.

Larger settlements like Jericho arose along salt and flint trade routes. This chronology was called into question in 1996 by new archaeological evidence.

Northern Eurasia was resettled as the glaciers of the last glacial maximum retreated. Following a two-year study commisioned by the English Heritage Foundation, researchers concluded that the great circles of blustones and sarsens had in fact been put up between 2,600 BC and 2,030 BC. - Neolithic Age - "According to popular history, this period [10,000 - 8,000 B.

Researchers probing the ocean bottom have found 18-story-high towers of stone deep in the ocean near a section of volcanic fault ridges that extend for 6,200 miles along the Atlantic Ocean floor."9,000 B. - Jericho Settlement - "This city, located near a permanent spring a few miles west of the Jordan River was excavated by Kathleen Kenyon. Manfred Heun of the Agricultural University of Norway, along with Norwegian, German, and Italian colleagues, examined the DNA of 68 lines of cultivated einkorn (Triticum monococcum monococcum), 194 lines of wild einkorn (T. boeoticum) from nine geographical regions within the Fertile Crescent, and nine lines of a weedy einkorn (T. aegilopoides) found in the Balkans." - Fig Cultivation / Middle East - "[....] In the Middle East, figs were domesticated 11,400 years ago. In the New World, corn was being cultivated 9,000 years ago. Some scholars have proposed that the Sumerians came by ship, landing on the north shore of the Persian Gulf.' " 8,000 B. - Florida Indians - "Florida's Aucilla River is yielding evidence of the adaptability of Paleoindians to their changing environment at the end of the Pleistocene, 10,000 years ago.

There were indications of settlement after 9,000 B. For a decade, researchers from the Florida Museum of Natural History have been excavating the Page-Ladson site, and this past fall [1996] they uncovered the ground surface of a Paleoindian habitation at a depth of 15 feet.

During photosynthesis, plants absorb carbon dioxide from the air and transform it into sugars, carbohydrates, and other carbon-based molecules.

Some of those carbon products transfer from the roots to symbiotic fungi and soil microbes, which store the carbon in soil as humus.

Radiocarbon dates place the beginning of the occupation at ca. At the time, the site, now only five miles from the Gulf Coast near Tallahassee, was nearly 100 miles inland, and Florida's landscape resembled Africa's savannahs.
