The First Shorebilly’s

PDD 29 (9)

Radical theory of first Americans places Stone Age Europeans in Delmarva 20,000 years ago.

The crew of the Virginia scallop trawler Cinmar hauled a mastodon tusk onto the deck of their boat then with another oddity dropping out of the net: a dark, tapered stone blade, nearly eight inches long and still sharp.

The mastodon relic found near the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay turned out to be 22,000 years old, suggesting that the blade was just as ancient.

“This stuff is beginning to give us a real nice picture of occupation of the Eastern Shore around 20,000 years ago.”
