Its ten-story Monks Mound has a larger circumference than the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan or the Great Pyramid of Egypt.Recent re-examinations of Clovis materials using improved carbon-dating methods produced results of 11,050 and 10,800 radiocarbon years BP. Folsom tools were left behind between 9000 BCE and 8000 BCE. They were the earliest ancestors of the Athabascan-speaking peoples, including the present-day and historical Navajo and Apache. Archaeologists have explored and dated eleven Middle Archaic sites in present-day Louisiana and Florida at which early cultures built complexes with multiple earthwork mounds; they were societies of hunter-gatherers rather than the settled agriculturalists believed necessary according to the theory of Neolithic Revolution to sustain such large villages over long periods. A Late Archaic archaeological culture that inhabited the area of the lower Mississippi Valley and surrounding Gulf Coast.They constructed large multi-family dwellings in their villages, which were used seasonally. These people were part of the Southwestern Archaic Tradition centred in north-central New Mexico, the San Juan Basin, the Rio Grande Valley, southern Colorado, and south-eastern Utah. The prime example is Watson Brake in northern Louisiana, whose 11-mound complex is dated to 3,500 BC, making it the oldest, dated site in the Americas for such complex construction. Evidence of this culture has been found at more than 100 sites, from the major complex at Poverty Point, Louisiana across a 100-mile (160 km) range to the Jaketown Site near Belzoni, Mississippi.It is presently believed that 3 major migrations occurred, as traced by linguistic and genetic data.These early Palaeo-Indians soon spread throughout the Americas, diversifying into many hundreds of culturally distinct nations and tribes.
