Finding the First American: Archaeology's 21st Century Challenge
For decades, a prehistoric culture called "Clovis" has been thought of as the archaeological leavings of the first people to inhabit the Americas some 12,000 years ago. Over the last few years, careful review of the archaeological evidence reveals severe flaws in the "Clovis First" theory. The resulting newly engaged debate rises in large measure from the Gault Clovis site in Central Texas with which Dr. Collins has been engaged for many years. The challenge is to develop a replacement.

New Evidence for Ritual at an Etruscan Sanctuary
The Etruscan site of Poggio Colla, about twenty miles north-east of Florence, has been excavated since 1995 as a joint project of SMU, Franklin and Marshall, and the University of Pennsylvania. Recent work has provided dramatic evidence for ritual at a hilltop sanctuary that spans most of Etruscan history, from the seventh to the second century BC. This evidence consists of a series of votive deposits that include bronzes, jewelry, and even architectural elements reused from an early temple.

The survey is a joint project of the Greek Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities, led by Katerina Delaporta, the Canadian Archaeological Institute of Athens [which includes the A&M Institute of Nautical Archaeology and other institutional members], and the Hellenic Center for Marine Research. The goal of the project is to locate, map and record shipwrecks, their cargoes and related artifacts in areas where historical sources indicate that large fleets sank due to battles during the Persian War.
