Manis Mastodon: 13,800 years old give or take

This is a pretty interesting story.  There have been several sites that seem to predate Clovis, but there has been considerable resistance to their acceptance.  The Manis Mastodon seems to be a pretty solid case based on many lines of evidence.  Really, Clovis-first bites the dust.  And for the folks saying “well, it’s reeeealy early Clovis”  that seems to be stretching the meaning of “Clovis” so far it’s meaningless.
