The pre-Clovis occupation of Florida: The Page-Ladson and Wakulla Springs Lodge Data
James S. Dunbar 

The Page-Ladson stratigraphy provides the first well-dated, substantially uninterrupted, regional, Pleistocene-type section in the Southeast US. Near the bottom of that section is a pre-Clovis level with artifacts and Pleistocene megafauna remains. A battery of seven statistically related radiocarbon dates were taken on Unit 3 samples and, when averaged, yield an radiocarbon age of 12,425 ±32 14C BP. This radiocarbon age was calibrated to a calendar-year range from 14,588 to 14,245 cal. years BP. This means that humans utilized the Page-Ladson site about 1,500 calendar years before Clovis. Lanceolate projectile points made on thin flakes were recovered from displaced context at the Page-Ladson site and appear to be the most likely pre-Clovis candidates. The Wakulla Springs Lodge site yielded the same point type from the deepest level of the site along with preforms including a very large Simpson-like preform. Evidence from the Wakulla Springs Lodge site indicates that flakes extracted from large biface preforms, such as the Simpson preform, were used to manufacture smaller lanceolate projectiles. This point type has been named the Page-Ladson and is similar in many respects to the Cactus Hill pre-Clovis point. It will be the presenter’s intent to track the implications and evidence for per-Clovis Paleoindian activity over the landscape from Georgia into North Florida because it appears the mastodon and the Pre-Clovis Paleoindians migrated to the Page-Ladson site from Georgia. The implications of Paleoindian hunting strategies will be discussed.

Hello and Welcome to my Tesla blog

Welcome to my very first blog about Tesla Motors and my experience as owner of a Tesla P85D. I hope you will find this blog informative, fun and that you will follow me through my journey of owning my first Tesla in Norway.

This just in, the latest in European tech news is that Tesla Motors will be expanding their supercharging network in Czech.

This is a much-needed upgrade to connect the east with the west, for Tesla drivers at least.

 

Prague supercharging station incoming!

The latest news coming from Tesla motors is that Czech will receive two more supercharging stations, to complement the one currently in Humpolec (around 80km from Prague).

This news can be seen on Tesla’s supercharger map https://www.tesla.com/no_NO/findus#/bounds/49.6573504,17.396027,49.5329452,17.1630437,d?place=olomoucsupercharger&search=store,service,supercharger,destination%20charger

which includes plans for a charging station in the center of Prague, as well as one in Olomouc, around 150 km towards the south-west, close to the Polish and Slovak borders.

This is great news for those heading through Germany to Hungary for example, total diet as previously it was very difficult to make the trip all the way from the Supercharger just outside Dresden to the one in Brno for example.

Now with the charging station in Prague, Tesla drivers can relax and enjoy a stroll around St Charles bridge or one of the beautiful medieval cathedrals.

The stations are planned to be operational at the end of 2017, and for now Tesla drivers are recommended to use destination charging or one of the many type 2 plugs available.

This American company is spreading their wings across the pond and we here at HD Portal are glad to report that these 2 charging stations are not the only plans for their ever-growing supercharging network.

Many more stations are planned for the center of Europe, especially in France. Also, Tesla plans a couple along the Mediterranean, in Italy and Spain especially. This will enable those from the colder parts of Europe to drive down to South in search of sunny weather and a bit of a tan!

What do you think about these plans, please share with us in the comment section below. If you know of any supercharging stations coming up near you, or can recommend any good destination charging hotels we would love to hear about it.
