Our programme of tried and tested group holidays for single travellers offer varying adventure levels from leisurely trips in the Deep South USA to hiking and rafting in the wilds of Alaska.Human settlement of North America may have occurred at least 115,000 years earlier than thought, if intriguing evidence unearthed in California is correct.Archaeologists called these presumed pioneers the Clovis culture, after distinctive stone tools that were found at sites near Clovis, New Mexico, in the 1920s and 1930s.As caches of Clovis tools were uncovered across North America over subsequent decades, nearly all archaeologists signed on to the idea that the Clovis people were the first Americans.The geology of the Rocky Mountains is that of a discontinuous series of mountain ranges with distinct geological origins.Collectively these make up the Rocky Mountains, a mountain system that stretches from Northern British Columbia through central New Mexico and which is part of the great mountain system known as the North American Cordillera.The latter were previously believed to be the first people in North America.Artifacts at this site may predate Clovis by 3,000 years or more, but these conclusions are disputed.

If you are planning to travel alone we believe our singles adventure holidays are the best way for single travellers to explore North, Central & South America.

The primary excavation has gone down to a level that dates to at least 50,000 B. Until increasing challenges in the first decade of the 21st century to the Clovis theory based on this site and others, it was unusual for archaeologists to dig deeper than the layer of the Clovis culture, as they then believed that no human artifacts would be found older than Clovis.

Among the objects from the "pre-Clovis" stratum, dated to 16,000-20,000 years BP, is a large piece nicknamed the "Topper Chopper." This apparent tool offers some of the most compelling evidence for human agency, including bifacial flaking of the edge. The site is somewhat hilly: the lowest section lies along the river at an elevation between 80 feet (24 m) and 90 feet (27 m), while the highest is the site's eastern edge, which rises above 130 feet (40 m).

Topper is an archaeological site located along the Savannah River in Allendale County, South Carolina, United States.

It is noted as a location of artifacts which some archaeologists believe to indicate human habitation of the New World earlier than the Clovis culture.
