The objects were found at an archaeological site known as El Coyote, located in the Los Cabos region, the INAH said, adding that they “bolster the hypothesis” that the first colonists of the hemisphere populated the region via watercraft migration, following coastlines from northeast Asia southward into the Americas.
The researchers found cut and polished seashells, fishing devices and stone tools used for cutting and scraping (choppers, percussive devices, planes, scrapers and knives) that date back between 8,600 and 9,300 years.
