“We were looking at something very, very old, but it had the same fracture patterns that we had seen before,” says Kathleen Holen.

The bones looked as though they had been set on a large ‘anvil’ stone and struck with a ‘hammer’ rock.

The find halted construction, and palaeontologist Tom Deméré of the San Diego Natural History Museum led a five-month excavation.

His crew uncovered teeth, tusks and bones of an extinct relative of elephants called a mastodon (Mammut americanum), alongside large broken and worn rocks.

“At face value, these results are about as good as it can get,” he says.

Collecting ancient DNA from the remains and determining the animal’s evolutionary relationship to other mastodons could also help to establish the site's age, notes Pontus Skoglund, a population geneticist at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, who works on ancient DNA.

It costs 0 or 0 to take a woman on a decent date in San Francisco. “That’s the ‘trumpets and confetti’ night out: Dinner, drinks at a cocktail bar, nightclub and an Uber home.” But on the first date? He takes women for a walk around Mission Dolores Park.

“The type of person that moves here is often times beautiful and intelligent,” he says, “and she is going on a date with a 6’3” Ivy League Silicon Valley tech millionaire or banker.

He says he has dated hundreds of women since moving to San Francisco eight years ago.

It really does shift the ground completely,” says John Mc Nabb, a Palaeolithic archaeologist at the University of Southampton, UK.

“I suspect there will be a lot of reaction to the paper, and most of it is not going to be acceptance.” The study focuses on ancient animal-bone fragments found in 1992 during road repairs in suburban San Diego.

Ancient humans settled in North America around 130,000 years ago, suggests a controversial study — pushing the date back more than 100,000 years earlier than most scientists accept.

The jaw-dropping claim, made in Nature, is based on broken rocks and mastodon bones found in California that a team of researchers say point to human activity.
