I have written a book on this intriguing subject which has just been published.
In this blog I will post excerpts and other interesting texts on this fascinating subject.

Calico Site is closed

The Calico "Early Man Site" in Yermo, California, has been closed (BLM closes Early Man Site, John Beyer For the Daily Press Posted Apr 27, 2019).

It is located on land adminstrated by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which shut it down due to health concerns and vandalism. It may reopen if funds are secured to ensure the place is safe.

Calico is a controversial site (see our post) and funding will be hard to find.

You can learn all about the site at its website.

I will admit that I have mixed feelings about the Calico artifacts. I am not persuaded that they are man-made.

  1. Austin,
    Have you seen the whole suite of artifacts?
    It's pretty hard to argue that a denticulated biface is a geofact.
    It's also hard to argue with the presence of stone not found anywhere near the site, such as the banded chert that came from colorado, or the yellow ochre that is not native to the site either.
